[petsc-dev] "participants" on gitlab

All "developers" are listed as able to grant (optional) approvals --
approval from codeowners/integrators is still needed regardless of those
optional approvals.  We should perhaps remove that because I don't know
a way to have some able to approve without the notification problem you
mention below.  Unfortunately, I think that reduces incentive to review,
and we're always stressed for reviewing resources.

Ideally only the participants involved in the particular MR should be picked. Note that currently there is a huge gap between the ''Participate'' and ''On mention'' levels in the notification settings. With the former, I get spammed with notifications whenever a new MR is created. With the later, I won’t receive any notification (even someone replied my comments) unless explicitly @ by someone.
