Just a couple requests if I may.

I don't mind a separate list or anything else, but please keep a way for 
some of us to still be able to check the "patch flow" like now via 
email. I don't mind if it this requires tinkering on my end as long as 
it's "possible"...

For bugzilla I'd rather prefer if it remained because, well, it works 
without javascript and is simple and lightweight... I don't mind web UIs 
if they're simple but gitlab overall leaves a lot to be desired.

As above, is it too much hassle to keep this around? Even if it's just a 
mirror. I like that it's simple and lightweight and can be browsed 
easily, gitlab is way too bloated both in design and accessing it, and 
doesn't work without javascript either.

I have to admit when I first saw the gitlab experiment, I didn't expect 
a total overhaul like this even for stuff not related to patches, I 
thought it would be optional.

Just my 2 cents.
