Gitlab itself crawled due to the way it handled groups - it simply
wasn't designed to handle a single group containing KDE's ~2000
developers. It also had some fundamental issues with how repositories
got moved around - so if a repository was moved from a user's personal
namespace to the shared KDE namespace, every single KDE developer
would get spammed about this.

Sysadmin also had some concerns regarding the integrity of the
codebase (which was what really killed it).
