    • Make default branch protection an option.

      As of 7.4, the default branch is protected by default. I'm sure that's great for many organisations who work that way, but now I have to unprotect the default branch every time a new project is added. I'd love to see a checkbox or setting somewhere that allows me to turn this behaviour on or off.

      • Common issue numbering across forks

        Project independent issue numbering was introduced in GitLab 6.2. It makes perfect sense for projects which are independent.

        However, one great feature of git that GitLab promotes as well, is forking. And forked projects are not so much independent. :)

        We are developing several customised applications in forks of the same base project. The project specific issue numbering causes problems if the fork and the base project has an issue with the same number. E.g. when you update a fork (merging changes from upstream):
        - "mentioned in" comments are posted to an irrelevant ticket
        - "closing #NNNN" closes an irrelevant…

        • Branded Login Page for CE

          Could you please add logo/branding to CE? What's the incentive behind restricting this to EE only?

          • Set due dates for individual issues

            Sometimes we add issues that are independent of a milestone. An example of this type of issue would be a bug or a question. I'd like to be able to set a due date for these individual issues without having to add them to a milestone. Thanks!

            • Create a note when issue labels change

              It would be great to create a note each time a label is added/removed to/from an issue.

              This would be especially useful is you use the labels as `states` for the issue.

              • File storage

                It would be great if there is a way to store documents in a project like PDF files for a project outside the GIT repo. I would use this feature to store testing VM's.

                • Add Protected Branch granular push/merge permissions

                  Hello,

                  We could really use some more granular permissions on protected branches.

                  Particularly being able to grant a group the ability to "Push to THIS protected branch".

                  For example all of the application development team can push changes into the development branch but they cannot push into the production branch. Only application development leads and the manager can merge into the production branch.

                  To do that we need to allow "Developers" the ability to push into a specific protected branch. A simple checkbox in the protected branch screen that said "Allow Developers to push to this protected branch" would be…

                  • Implement GitLab-flavor MarkDown based on CommonMark

                    Markdown is a poorly defined markup standard.
                    Writing markdown has been a pain in the ass so far.

                    For example, it is almost impossible to know how to properly put a code block in a nested list entry.

                    With CommonMark, you will have no problem with nested lists.

                    • Better visibility on code review approval/refusal

                      Gitlab Merge requests are a good tools for code review, but they could be improved.

                      I suggest adding a box (such as the CI box) that shows who voted for or against a merge request.

                      This would only consider the last vote from a user.

                      When a MR is accepted (upvoted) by all the reviewers, this box turns green.
                      As soon as there is one refusal (downvote) the box turns red.

                      This allows for more visibility on the state of a merge request, as when someone changed their mind about a MR (for instace because an issue they had with…

                        • Ability to configure permissions table

                          You have introduced permissions at `Group` level, but the matrix is too restrictive in my opinion.

                          I don't understand why `Masters` of `Groups` have the same permissions like `Developers`.

                          I would recommend to give the following permissions to `Masters` at `Group` Level :
                          * Edit group
                          * Manage group members

                          It would lead to this new matrix (see the attached file)

                          These new permissions mean that :
                          * only `Owners` would be able to create `Projects` inside the `Group` or remove the `Group`.
                          * `Masters` can also (like `Owners`) edit `Group` (change the image of the `Group`...) and manage `Group`…

                          • Allow Disabling LDAP Paged Searches

                            Our company's LDAP server advertises that it supports paged search results when in fact it does not. This is not something that we can fix.

                            It would be nice if Gitlab exposed the net-ldap option to disable paged searching so that we can use Gitlab with our LDAP server. The option I'm speaking about is net-ldap's 'force_no_page' option. I can provide more details if anyone is interested.

                            I don't consider this a bug, because it's behaviour of net-ldap and not Gitlab, but if Gitlab provided an option to control this option in net-ldap it would mean we (and probably others)…

                            • Customizing reports for CI

                              In case we have many commands in build script and output contains many lines reports is too difficulty for read. Suggestion is add ability to group command via build script, for example:

                              ```
                              > Run tests # It's command group name
                              command 1
                              command 2
                              > Deploy code
                              command 3
                              ```

                              Also output of commands from different groups must be placed in different code block and would be greate to add a folding. For example what I meen - https://scrutinizer-ci.com/g/yiisoft/yii2/inspections/c16333da-c8a8-4fd1-9b83-a77ebbdd67e7

                                  It would be nice to have the preview and fullscreen ability, on all markup language able fields.

                                  • New role to manage merge requests but not push via ssh

                                    A new role "Manager" or "MergeRequestManager", that has all of master's permissions, *Except* push to code. Merges originating from server then are allowed, but via ssh are not.

                                    I have a working implementation of this on standby already.

                                    I sifted through first few pages and haven't seen this. I violated the contributing policy by posting a feature request in issue tracker - I am sorry about that, I will close it before anyone notices.

                                    • add a size limit to commit views

                                      I have a commit with over a thousand files changed... guess what page doesn't load. I would love to see a cutoff limit for that page for extreme scenarios like mine.

                                      • Allow a diff/patch file to be downloaded from a merge request

                                        In an emergency situation, it's sometimes necessary to patch code on a QA/Staging or Production server without going through the full development process.

                                        It should therefore be possible to get a diff of an entire merge request (not just individual commits), and download it as a patch file that can be applied with the "patch" command (or git apply).

                                        At the moment, on gitlab.com at least, there's no good way to get a diff representing an entire MR.

                                        • Have a responsive design that scales to the full width

                                          I have a large and wide monitor, but some of the screens on GitLab don't expand to make use of available horizontal space. (The contents are in a fixed width block; the margins expand).

                                          Screens such as the milestone view and side-by-side diff view could immensely benefit from the extra space.
