I agree with this.

In our company we multiple times reviewed bug trackers (for migrating 
Bugzilla), but none actually had a good enough feature set to be 
beside perhaps Jira (which is non-free/open).

I would wait for the Bugzilla 6 release to judge if the UI arrives in 
the 21th
century before making any decisions what to use. Just that GitLab is 
modern doesn't give it all the features one needs.
