Add repository templates to gitlab

The ability for the admin to create a number of named git repository templates would be very nice.
It should be possible to add files to the template so any repo made from a template gets a copy of the template files.
When you want to make a new project in gitlab there should be a pulldown menu where you could choose a template created inhouse.

Many uses gitlab as an internal company git server, thus often specific setups are required for repositories.
Templates would simplify this by ensuring the default files are present at clone.
Maintenance of said files is easy since it should only be done in gitlab.

example files.
.ignore
.attributes
buildserver property files
and so much more.
