I am not an expert in coding, so I can not give you an answer within that area.
One thing I can say certainly, is that Gitlab is not owned by Microsoft, which is great.
Their past with antitrust/fraud is not something, you should forget.

Open Source is a great thing, we all should embrace.

GitLab has lots of features available even in the Free plan, like pages, pipelines and continuous integration, issue boards, wikis, time tracking. I really like that GitLab offers free private repositories and much more space per repository comparing to other Git repository management tools. Another significant point is that GitLab is under constant development, so new features appear on a constant periodicity.

Awesome alternative to Github. Issue tracker, code review, Jira and Jenkins integration or auto Devops as an alternative.

GitLab's corporate policy is to explicitly allow individuals and organisations that profit from human rights abuses to use their products and services. Avoid if you care about human rights.

Their CEO sent an email around to all staff stating as such after GitHub was revealed to be doing same. Not sure if that predates the link above but given this is the same dumpster fire of a company that requires women in sales to wear short skirts and heels (https://www.theregister.com/2020/02/06/gitlab_sales_women/ ) and had planned to implement deep user surveillance until widespread public outcry (https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/growth/product/-/issues/164 ), I would suggest anything they say publicly that makes them seem legit has no direct correlation with their internal policy.

PS SomeCallMeTim, the only thing you have done since logging in is stan for GitLab... you're not a GitLab PR sockpuppet, are you?
