I think Sven should have used the arch-dev-public mail list, but it does not
change the fact the current packages are hard to maintain and if no other developer
or trusted user wants to pick it up, it will be dropped.

Now, dropping does not mean deleting, they'll be moved to the AUR by Sven and subsequently
orphaned, precisely to allow interested parties to pick it up and maintain it.

News items are for things that require user attention and/or manual intervention. The gitlab
package will continue working after it gets dropped, just won't be updated anymore until someone
wishes to maintain it on the AUR.
