This doesn't address the issue and just reiterated the points? Gitlab is going
to be opened within the next months and we have users on Gitlab today. It's not
limited to staff.

Is it our obligation to propose any user-made RFC to a-d-p on behalf of them? Do
we want that?

The process is not clear and either assumes the RFC proposer can announce it, or
makes it implicit that it will be announced.
