That's awesome! Didn't realize there was a gitlab instance running on

So that would help to solve the problem of proposing backports and specific
patches for stable releases: just create a PR with the proposed change, and the
system would merge it after verifying everything works fine.

Indeed! Count on me. In fact, the changes we did in gitlab were thinking on
having a easy way to anyone to fork and have their own version.

Also, it would allow anyone to provide hosts with different cards to run the
tests, something we are quite limited at this moment (eg, we can't test on AMD
or Nouveau cards).
