Absolutely. I think the benefits reach beyond that--especially if a pull
request workflow could be set up. Right now it's "push into branch; ask
for comments" which is delightfully retro. Together with per-branch CI
(so the changes on the branch can be tested before they are merged, as
opposed to post-merge) this could result in a greatly improved developer

(Hydra is a good service, but it doesn't offer that level of integration
currently, and I think it would be a bit harder to set that up.)

Also note the recent discussion about why the Docker Hub web site's
Javascript usage made the Docker Hub service unacceptable. I hope we
don't waste time on discussing a GitLab installation if it doesn't fit
that specific requirement (since it runs a web server).

Same here.

Oh, you mean the GitLab hosted CI/CD accounts on gitlab.com. Toon and I
are proposing something different: a FSF/GNU hosted installation of the
GPL-ed GitLab software on local hardware.
