Without the intention to criticise the idea in general, has the responsible team considered any conflicts between GitLab's practices how they do open core rather than free software, and the DFSG? Are they compatible?
Will this partnership help improving the use and support of GitLab in Debian, i.e. will GitLab start supporting the GitLab packaging efforts in Debian, and help the Salsa team?
