[Hpr] Gitlab Server Getting Retired

After looking at some of the other self-hosted options, I did setup a new Git Server on Ubuntu 20.04 using GOGS, located at gogs.anhonesthost.net.

 

HPR can use it or not.  I scaled this system down significantly so that it wouldn’t be an issue.  It doesn’t have all the CICD stuff that Gitlab had, but honestly I don’t think anyone was using it for the code bases on there.

I'd think sourcehut would work better. I bet the owner would even allow hpr free whatever you needed. I feel that email + git workflow is very native. 

There are also gogs and gitea if you are going to selfhost and want github-like clones. 

Personally, with the amount of devs that we have.... fossil-scm seems like the best fit. My favorite fossil feature is the immutable commit history.

I use gitlab myself.  Why don’t we just switch over there?  It is free for small projects and a small number of users.

Hi Folx,

 

I want to let you all know that the current GitLab Server is getting ready to be retired at the end of the month.

 

There are a few reasons for this:

 

1.	It is running CentOS6 (this server has been alive since the beginning)
2.	It was Wrong Sized (Way larger then was needed)
3.	We had an issue with a ton of spam accounts at one point (That issue was mitigated, but due to the process that is required for removing the accounts, they have only been disabled.)

 

There are more but I figured I would keep it short and sweet.

 

My question to you all, as the HPR project(s) are the only ones that have any real activity besides some of my own, is there really a need for a private gitlab server?  Would a free account with GitHub serve the cause, or am I missing something?

 

Look forward to hearing back from everyone.

 

--Josh
