At the moment, you need to go to Drupal.org to find modules to add to your project. What if the modules were available within your Drupal project and could be installed with a simple push of a button in the user interface?
The current way the issue queue is organized can be pretty frustrating for module maintainers. There is little room for project management or prioritizing issues. To solve this, the community created ContribKanban. With GitLab, each project gets Kanban boards out of the box to help manage the issues.
