I think having buildbot would be more flexible for such an infrastructure then
piggy back on the pipeline system for gitlab. It sometimes feels too restrictive
being tied to git repositories and buildbot is a *lot* more flexible when it
comes to it.

It might also be worth a consideration that the build infrastructure would be
completely seperate from our git forge. This would make it easier if we want to
move VCS/forge in the future.
