For what it's worth, as someone who will not use the Gitlab UI, I don't 
"deplore web interfaces"; some work quite well for me. The problem is 
that Gitlab's web interface is terrible, borne out of mobile-first and 
"flat" UI—too much junk in the screen, too much padding, controls on 
every side of the screen without any pattern, incomprehensible symbols 
in place of words, infinite scrolling, sluggish and memory-heavy 

If someone were to design a reasonable UI for Gitlab, I would probably 
use it. Since the switch is inevitable I may end up wasting some of my 
time doing so myself.
