I believe the mirrors are enough for PR workflow, and I personally like the
clear borderline. The mirror is read only but you can still submit
patches.... become a committer and get access to the "real thing". Building
a GITASF extra to what we already have would just add complexity without
giving real advantages.

That said a lot of projects have their own vm(s) and other can normally get
one if requested, so nothing stops a project from providing gitlabs.
