Now that we've got the release out of the way, I want to do the switch
to GitLab as the master repository in the next day or two. I've got
everything prepared that we need now I believe. Must just flip the repo
mirror job into reverse and make the old repos read-only to current
maintainers to prevent acceidental pushes to the wrong place. I'll plan
to do this on Tuesday, approx 1200 GMT give/take an hour.  Maintainers
will merely need to update their git origin URL, nothing more.

Although this lockdown message suggests opening a merge request, and
we wouldn't immediately be using merge requests for libvirt.git, I
dont think that's a problem. The number of people who'll see and follow
this lockdown message is going to be pretty small to start with at least,
so its not a big deal if we tell them to use MR right now.
