"Work In Progress" Merge Requests
To prevent merge requests from accidentally being accepted before they're completely ready, GitLab blocks the "Accept" button for merge requests that have been marked a Work In Progress.
To mark a merge request a Work In Progress, simply start its title with

WIP to the merge request's source branch.
To allow a Work In Progress merge request to be accepted again when it's ready,
simply remove the
Filtering merge requests with WIP Status
