Subject: Re: Moving services
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::
- 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.
