FTR, gitlab supports kanban boards for repositories where issues are
enabled. maybe using salsa for kanban boards would be an avenue worth
exploring instead of maintaining yet another service, since salsa is
already being maintained anyway.

of course, KanBoard being a specialized tool, it probably has more
features and is way better than the gitlab kanban. or maybe, the gitlab
kanban is Good Enough™ for most uses.
