Right. That's not required anymore (updating the tickets). GitLab has it
built in. As does it have sending of e-mails built in.

I can't seem to find out how to do that now.

I knew this question would come, but couldn't find the time to write a nice
FAQ page about it yet. So, I've quickly taken some screenshots and uploaded
them in . I'll add the proze
later, but each step to take is a picture in that folder. Each next step is
the next-longer pathname.

You don't want webhooks: those are remote triggers. At some point we may
want "custom hooks" which are local triggers for the specific install and
executed next to the GitLab built-in triggers.

Hope the screenshots help! If not, don't hesitate to ask!
