@fbartels Thanks, I read all three article so have a much better understanding now.
It seems to me GitLab is a worthy competitor to GitHub and it makes sense I am discovering it now because when I found out Microsoft bought GitHub I knew there would be negative repercussions for developers.
If I do hear back from them I would consider doing some technical writer work for them probably.
Open source and remote work to me remain key issues to ensure the future of quality software development as it seems GitLab knows this.
@girish You are correct. It would be difficult no matter what. Moving from omnibus to source is a difficult task. It pretty much boiled down to the secrets file not being converted correctly. The other issue was uploading a tar.gz backup to the container. I waited +2hours to upload the file and at 99% uploaded it just said the the upload failed with no other information given on why it failed. My upload speed is 50 mb/s but I know this is more on DO side, but I'm still puzzled as to why the upload failed.
Either way, we're headed in the right direction and I'm excited with the possibilities.
Someone got autoscaling docker machine working with Gitlab-runner using Sysbox.
"The interesting point is that the arguments to use the sysbox runtime are passed in the “--engine-insecure-registry”; this allows additional parameters that docker-machine does not support to be added"
@nj This whole inheritance thing is not ideal 😕 I don't like it that you have to copy/paste this whole ldap block. I will rework the package to have the whole gitlab.yml editable via the file manager. That seems more sustainable and puts the onus on us (the packagers) instead of the user (you) to figure out all this yaml complexity.
