I meant ignore the issues with these ToS, such as the “Indemnification”
section at <https://about.gitlab.com/terms/>; fundamentally, I want to
contribute to GnuTLS, I don’t want to have to deal with GitLab B.V., but
I think we already discussed it before.  I also find it sad that a
distributed VCS led to more centralization than we had before…

I understand this service is convenient, in particular for many
newcomers, but IMO we shouldn’t be blind to its costs.

Thanks for doing this!

Like I said, I’ll resignedly accept the ToS and do that in the future if
that’s more convenient for you.

The convention in GnuTLS is to add ’Signed-off-by’ by the author?
