At least in the case where a Task is tagged with VDG and also something 
else, it probably makes sense to have it live on GitLab in the 
"something else" project/group/etc. Back in the Phab days, we used to 
tag everything VDG-relevant with the VDG tag, but on Gitlab it probably 
makes more sense to just CC the "@teams/vdg" group instead.
