You can enable/disable it per project, might be a good idea to leave it
enabled for upstream projects, and leave it disabled for debian package
Also, you can use external "issue trackers" in gitlab, and these are
also per-project. It has special support for Redmine and Jira (one for
the Debian BTS would have to be written). It has very limited support
for an email workflow in its native issue tracker.
I didn't check how well the native gitlab issue tracker would play with
the Debian BTS upstream forwarding. But it is way more limited/simpler
than the Debian BTS.
