How can we improve Azure Web Apps?

Give Linux web apps same deployment options as Windows based apps

Linux based web apps have 3 deployment options (GitHub, BitBucket, Local Git repo) whereas Windows based apps have 7 deployment options (including the "External Repository" which is what I was looking for).

This request is to bring the options for Linux based apps up to speed, and perhaps until then, provide documentation and/or UI verbiage as to why there are differences. I spent an hour or two trying to hook up GitLab as a deployment option (including trying to use the Azure CLI) in vein.

BTW the CLI gives a cryptic error message when trying to add an external repository. See my StackOverflow post here:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46245144/deployment-from-azure-web-site-from-gitlab

Perhaps a better error message from the CLI would have tipped me to the fact that this is not possible for my Linux based web app.

Thanks
