  • (1) : GitLab and Gitea wiki permissions match repo ones. GitLab and Gitea wikis can be accessed through a git repo.
  • (2) : GitLab's development process is subject to discussion and subjective opinions. Be careful when stating a definite answer to this question. You can read here and also here and there with your trollometer on.
  • (3) : GitLab allows to add release notes to git tags. Release notes are Markdown text, and you can attach files to it, resulting in a download area much like github's release area.
