### Merge request description format
Please submit merge requests using the following template in the merge request
description area. Copy-paste it to retain the markdown format.
```
## What does this MR do?
## Are there points in the code the reviewer needs to double check?
## Why was this MR needed?
## What are the relevant issue numbers?
## Screenshots (if relevant)
```
### Contribution acceptance criteria
1. The change is as small as possible
1. Include proper tests and make all tests pass (unless it contains a test
exposing a bug in existing code)
1. If you suspect a failing CI build is unrelated to your contribution, you may
try and restart the failing CI job or ask a developer to fix the
aforementioned failing test
1. Your MR initially contains a single commit (please use `git rebase -i` to
squash commits)
1. Your changes can merge without problems (if not please merge `master`, never
rebase commits pushed to the remote server)
1. Does not break any existing functionality
1. Fixes one specific issue or implements one specific feature (do not combine
things, send separate merge requests if needed)
1. Migrations should do only one thing (e.g., either create a table, move data
to a new table or remove an old table) to aid retrying on failure
1. Keeps the GitLab code base clean and well structured
1. Contains functionality we think other users will benefit from too
1. Doesn't add configuration options since they complicate future changes
1. Changes after submitting the merge request should be in separate commits
(no squashing). If necessary, you will be asked to squash when the review is
over, before merging.
1. It conforms to the [style guides](#style-guides) and the following:
- If your change touches a line that does not follow the style, modify the
entire line to follow it. This prevents linting tools from generating warnings.
- Don't touch neighbouring lines. As an exception, automatic mass
refactoring modifications may leave style non-compliant.
