Re: Gitlab Evaluation & Migration

Same. One thing I like very much about GitLab is that it puts the onus of merging post-review on the *reviewer*.

In this thread there have been some qualms on "is GitLab maybe harder on newbie devs", but this doesn't take into account the extremely awkward dance we currently do where we ask people if they have dev access or not and if they need help landing. In GitLab, once your MR is up there, and gets accepted, you're done - much smoother, no feeling of "you're not part of the team yet", etc. The reviewer just clicks "Merge" and it's in (no more fiddling with arc patch/land for the reviewer, either).

If Rebase is really convenient for reviewers (the button), that's more likely to stay that nice, because people don't get asked "can you rebase this for me", either. It builds on the strength.

Note that you can still do rebase merge manually. Gitlab can show the list of commands
that you need to run. In that list just replace git merge with rebase.

But I also prefer to just have a button.

I asked for this too, i thought it had been enabled at some point, but i guess not.

So +1

Seems it's currently being done on-demand, per-repo.

The ticket I linked has a Rails snippet for doing it for all projects,
which sysadmin may find useful.
