I have the same experience - I've used git since before it was usable
and I'm more than happy to not have to worry about making git
send-email work. I'm pretty sure that gitlab in general lowers the bar
for contributions considerably, I know I find my self doing a lot more
reviews and drive-by comments because of how easy it feels.
