The experience from Weston shows that the Gitlab merge request based workflow works really well. Recently there have also been issues with the mailing list that have made the email based workflow more painful than it used to be. Those issues might have been temporary or occasional, but they probably are only going to increase. The MR workflow is different, it has its issues (freedesktop/freedesktop#74) and we likely lose the explicit Reviewed-by etc. tags from commit messages, but it is also much easier to work with: no more whitespace damaged patches, lost email, setting up git-send-email; we gain automated CI before any human reviewer even looks at anything, and people can jump in to an ongoing discussion even if they weren't subscribed before. If you still want email, you can subscribe to that selectively(!) in Gitlab yourself. This text has been copied from Weston's CONTRIBUTING.md of the 5.0.91 release and slightly altered for Wayland.
