Here are some initial observations for Gitlab:
*It looks like it mashes all the posts for an issue together with no
spacing in between. I'm a bit concerned that people will perceive this
as one, big text posting and be a bit less likely to read the prior
discussion on an issue (though I realize there is a limit to how much
people will read in general). Is there a way to configure this?
*I like how it seems to retain most of the github features we are using,
even the graphs.
*I'm assuming it had a built-in importer. Using a built-in importer is
good, since we could make mistakes and lose discussion content
otherwise. It also prevents us from spending time on conversion scripts
we will never use again.
I can try to look more at it later.
Someone will need to test the email functionality.
