The fact is that the Community Edition deliberately omits some features that
are available in the proprietary enterprise editions, which is exactly the
definition of crippleware.

The thing is, GitLab is also not particularly open to external
contributions, in particular, they are not going to add features to the
Community Edition that they deliberately omitted, and if you submit a new
feature, they can also decide to restrict it to enterprise customers.
So seeing this stated as the main reason for having switched to GitLab
strikes me as very odd.
