As far as I can tell, Gitlab doesn't really have a concept of a
review, it's just big pile of disconnected comments... or rather,
they're just all connected to the MR.  But there's no concept of a
"review cycle" except by what you impose by convention.  At work, we
simulate it with assigning to author and reviewer, and the reviewer
signs off by resolving all comments.  Gitlab supports this a bit, it
can prevent you from merging until all comments are resolved, and that
includes the unconnected "discussion" ones.
