yes. It's just a different tooling you have to wrap your head around. In 
the case of Samba it has the added benefit, that every interested 
contributor can make use of the full Samba CI. This works by using a 
shared repo on gitlab where every registered developer (so you have to 
ask to be added, but this is freely granted) where you push your 
patchset to a branch name prefixed with your username (to avoid stepping 
on someone else's branch). That triggers an automated *full* CI run, so 
new contributors can be sure not to waste time of other developers 
before asking for review.

Sure, instead of pushing the resulting patchset from the review of your 
patchset to a github branch, I could send my patchset to the ML.

Having now used a more a different workflow for a few years, I 
appreciate how much more natural it feels to share, work on and review 
code with a tooling that is much more intergrated to git.

So what I'd like to propose for now is let's stick to the ML for now, 
next time I will send my patchset to the ML instead, but let's also 
consider and maybe test different possible toolings.

I don't think so, I'm not 100% sure on this though. But as it's NOT 
discarded on gitlab, I guess github will match feature wise.

Yeah, but does that really matter? So far this was not missed in the 
Samba gitlab tooling.
