I see in http://demo.gitlab.com/gitlab/gitlab_git/merge_requests/23 at the top 
right there is a "0 up 0 down". Is this votes? Is there some kind of ACL on 
who can vote on Merge Requests?

Also, do you guys know if anyone has deployed gitlab in something as big scale 
as the lots of repos and users we have?
