Same here, with Alioth, I often didn't figure out what I needed to do. I
spent large amount of time trying to do something before I just ended up
giving up. In GitLab, even when I'm not sure where a setting or button
is it at least doesn't take long to figure out where to do it. I think
Salsa is the single best thing to have happened in Debian in recent
years. It's definitely something that reduces the barrier of entry to
the Debian project, and I agree with recent sentiments expressed on the
debian-vote list that we should standardise on salsa completely. That
will pave the way for more ambitious ideas that are worth while like
standardising on a git-based source package, which right now seems like
a bit much to chew off in one go.
