For gitlab, mutually exclusive tags(which you'd want for things like OS) are only in the enterprise edition, and adding labels to bugreports is something that only members of a project can do. I know that many github projects don't just have triagers but also people who handle labelling the issues correctly. For the larger projects, like in my case Krita, I think we would have to either have a ton of bots to handle the labelling for us, or we need to give up on attempting to create any order in the tracker(and again, who will create those bots?). We just get in too many bugs, there are not enough people to triage all of them, and even if we would leverage the community here, I am not sure gitlab's permission system will allow for people who can label but have no desire to have access to the git repository. Also keep in mind that we're not done yet with moving to gitlab. Adding bugzilla migration to the mix might be too much for the community to handle, so it is probably more efficient to wait for bugzilla 6 in any case. I can't really comment much on the different needs of projects where they have their bugtracker. The thing that keeps returning is that the larger projects need bugzilla while the smaller projects would benefit from the easier usability of gitlab issues, which in turn is something that doesn't necessarily benefit the larger projects, because these have enough reach to have reached users who have the ability to type faster than they think and need a bit more encouragement to think about what they are typing (repellent ux is one of these options. A non-hostile solution might be possible but to my knowledge no one has ever programmed an open source version of it). For what it is worth, there is some minor bugzilla integration already possible in gitlab . This would allow dual issue style systems where the bugzilla bugs are the reported bugs and the phabricator tasks get replaced by the gitlab issues. : https://invent.kde.org/help/user/project/integrations/bugzilla.md -- Wolthera
