[GHC DevOps Group] The future of Phabricator

So IIUC Gitlab features:

- Good multi-platform *hosted* CI or at least workable integration
with other (existing) CI solutions
- Hosted review tool that we don't have to maintain ourselves (though
a little bit less good than Phabricator, allegedly)
- familiar GitHub-like workflow with no requirement to install extra
software locally
- Reuse of GitHub credentials
- Realistic path forward for migrating tickets from Trac

This combination sounds pretty good to me!

In the past when moving to GitHub was brought up, there were a handful of core contributors who argued strongly in favour of Phabricator, do we think that's changed? Do we have any indication of whether the survey respondents who were anti-Phabricator would be pro- or anti-GitLab?
