I tried working with github for a project, using a workflow of reviewing each commit. 
I personally really disliked it for creating a merge commit for each commit, that just 
clutters up the history (try looking at any github project with a few contributors).

Is this the same with gitlabs or can it cherry-pick after successful reviews?

On the other hand I find dealing with reviewboard quite cumbersome and thus this 
option still looks better to me.
