This seems like a challenge that needs to be addressed regardless of whether or not kdesrc-build does it automatically, because people creating tons and tons of forks is guaranteed to happen anyway if we move to Gitlab. It seems non-optimal if having more people able to submit merge requests results in the potential to blow up our servers.
