> I'd like to suggest that a GitLab issue should be filed for our merge
> requests, and that merge requests should link to at least one issue.
> This would make it easier for non-contributors who wish to file any type
> of issue to see if somebody has already worked on that aspect. In my
> experience, this can avoid duplicates. From what I see, users with less
> technical aptitude tend to look more at the existing issues than at
> merge requests. Also, the issue can be used for discussions with non-
> contributors, leaving the pull request conversations more focused on
> technical aspects.
