regarding libinput: I'll release 1.11 over the next month or so, so the
options are basically: move now or move after that. I'd rather not
switch git repos between RCs.

Otherwise I'm happy to move, I'm struggling with bugzilla, so I'm mostly
hoping that GitLab is going to be better (without having evaluated it 
deeply :)

Thanks for all the work on this btw.
