This happened. Here are the notes I took:

- confusion about project-level and group-project settings (e.g. labels) should fix that

- Q: Can I save custom queries for the issue lists?
A: Not really. there's the "Recent searches" thing, but apart of
that the best we can do is store useful URLs in other places.
See for examples the links on

- Q: "Create merge request" button on an issue creates a branch that, by default,
     does not follow our branch naming standards.
  A: One can click the "↓" button to choose a different branch name.
     Also, perhaps we could be less rigid wrt. our branch naming standards?

     Other ways to create a merge request while choosing the branch name:

      - push one's branch and click the link that "git push" displays, which offers
        to create a MR
      - push one's branch with Git push options:

Next one is tomorrow:
