Update: Last night I tried deleting and forking. It's now properly
linked as a fork, which I think is important for MR submissions once
that becomes possible so that's great, but no CI setup was copied.

The CI/CD page instructs to place a gitlab yml config in the root of
the repo. I know there's one in extras/. I tried copying that to the
root dir in my master branch and pushing, but that alone did nothing. I
think per the docs I additionally need "runners", but I'm lost there
with no experience of setting this stuff up. My only prior experience
is with making a pretty basic multi-platform travis setup for something

Essentially what I'm after is some simple way to get my videolan repo
to be linked up to the same testing suite as master and the rest of you
guys so I can check things compile on the full set of platforms and
config selections you're all testing on. Maybe that's only possible if
my account were a member of the team? I don't know. The runners page
did offer a few "shared runners" from other people, and said something
about "group runners" being unavailable because I'm not a member of a
group. Perhaps in my situation the only thing possible is to make my
own custom setup...?
