I'm with Gregor on this one. I can expect our services not to be forced into
their knees, just be increasing the workload (hint: queue).

Gitlab has a configuration to limit how many jobs can be run concurrently. The
user's action might not have been optimal, but it has shown, that the current
setting is not optimal either. So I think it's best, not to blame the user, but
adjust our Gitlab configuration, announce the changes, point out how to skip
pipelines [1] and move on.
