Fortunately, with the support of the real-time collaboration framework Yjs and the local database available to browsers known as IndexedDB, you too can implement robust offline-first applications that not only enable peer-to-peer collaborative editing but also represent a wholesale revolution in the ways in which we interact with not only content management systems (CMS) but also web applications at large.

Throughout Drupal's history, contributors have rallied around Drupal.org as the single source of truth for both the code running Drupal and the infrastructure powering Drupal's issue queues, source control, and automated testing. As the Drupal Association continues on its journey to integrate GitLab features with Drupal.org, we're beginning to see the first glimpses of how Drupal contribution and issue management will evolve thanks to cutting-edge functionality like merge requests and issue forks in GitLab.
