Just to follow up on some of Frank's questions on GitLab:

   - You can find the source code for GitLab CE here. It's not just an
   'open core', the majority of the application is open source::
   https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce
   - Anyone can setup a project on GitLab for free. Simply create an
   account here (https://gitlab.com/users/sign_in). They do offer a managed
   host under the brand 'GitHost': https://githost.io/

I agree that GitHub is the industry standard option open source products,
but I think that GitLab is a superior service.
