Thomas, All,

On 2021-03-28 21:13 +0200, Thomas Petazzoni spake thusly:
> Here is a small patch series that adds a gitlab macro, similar to the
> github macro. What prompted me to add this is a pending patch for a
> package, which uses gitlab, but does a git clone instead of relying on
> gitlab tarballs.

Although tht is my personal preferenc, to use the git download backend
for git-hosted source, rather than use remotely generated tarballs, I've
still applied the entire series as-is, because that makes gitlab on-par
with github, and the consensus among mantainers was not clear-cut.

Still, I'd like to remind everyone that git trees are cached lcoally,
which may make for a slower first-step, but is supposed to gfreatly
increase subsequent downloads and updates. The local git cache has been
quite some work, and not usign it is quite a bit of a waste..

Anyway: entire series applied, thanks!

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
