Um, actually, now that I think of it, that also needs a bit of substantiation. 
What are the things that would make gitlab offer a better issue reporting 
experience for users?

Is it really true that gitlab's UX is less frightening for our non-technical 
users? How easy is it to actually find the place to file a bug against GIMP

does it offer easier login, an easier way to add screen shots and screen 
recordings or crash logs?

Is it really true that gitlab makes it easier for our users to make reports of
