The Eclipse ESCET project has a successful Jenkins build from our GitLab repository.

Pushes and merge requests are automatically picked up by Jenkins now, and Jenkins reports back the status/results to GitLab. Integration is very nice.

We worked on this with Frederic Gurr. See also the discussion here:

Kind regards,
Dennis Hendriks

Some answers and comments. In the end, we realize that migrating systems
is time consuming and we're here to assist along the way.

There was a time -- several years ago -- where the complaints about
Bugzilla were frequent.  Nowadays, there are no more complaints, because
those developers have taken their projects (and development talent)
elsewhere. Remaining on the arguably niche (Gerrit) or obsolete
(Bugzilla) system is self-serving when resource constraints are at play,
but does nothing to attract new talent that does not want to use those
systems, thus exacerbating or perpetuating the resource constraint.

Yes, GitLab supports issue dependency, even across repositories /
projects. See this as an example, where GitLab issue #1 is blocked by
Technology/Dash issue #146

That is the goal; we've had a few early adopters migrate (from GitHub
and from BZ/Gerrit) and we're all taking notes. We do rely on the
community's willingness to share their own experiences with the
migration, however.

I've been maintaining the Gitlab Wiki page as I get questions and/or
concerns ( )  and the Releng team
maintains the CBI page. So far, we have not had any feedback on CBI
related to GitLab. Https://

As a note, both of those pages will need to migrate over to GitLab wiki
at some point.

Many thanks,
