GitLab migration and Go-Live

Indeed we're self-hosting this GitLab instance. There's a recent migration
test up on https://gitlab-test.common-lisp.net, if you want to have a look
at the result. Project pages will indeed remain untouched and thus stored
The intent of the URL redirection is indeed that you can rely on it for
existing links to be forwarded. Of course, it could happen that we have
overlooked URLs which should have been rewritten but are not. To address
that, we'll monitor the webserver's 404 logs, but if you discover any,
please do feel free to report here or directly to admin at common-lisp.net.
Thanks in advance!
