In principle, nothing. However, in general GitLab-the-company seems
significantly more devoted to the idea of GitLab as an open-source
project than Phacility was to Phabricator.

In truth, Phabricator was
never really an healthy FOSS project. Yes, the source was available but
the maintainers were quite clear that they have no intention of
accepting unsolicited patches.

GitLab, on the other hand, encourages external contributors, has
actively supported adoption by open source projects and has an active
set of maintainers.
