UI is one thing, but Colin's not wrong about CI.

Love Github or hate it, Github Actions is a pretty strong CI
implementation that is very easy to set up. I haven't personally set up
CI for a Gitlab repo yet, but I believe it's also relatively simple

Doing it for a non-dist-git Pagure project is not *terrible*, but it
