I don't think I've seen any summary of that discussion, and hence I
also can't judge or know whether this is meant just for huge and
presumably very mechanical series, or as a general form of patch
submission. The immediate point that strikes me is - how would I
comment on such series without having to go to gitlab? (There are
likely other issues I'd want to see addressed before this becomes
a common process.)
