GitLab server

Within X2Go we are running a GitLab server.

GitLab is a DevOps tool that not only include git repositories, but also issue tracking, wiki, pull requests and continuous integration & delivery (CI/CD). This product is also used in companies such as NASA, CERN, GNOME and SpaceX.

We are using the open-source (FOSS) version of GitLab, which include most features we need out-of-the-box.
