Get permissions to build projects on git.cloudron.io??
Is there a way for me to get permissions to push my custom apps to the cloudron gitlab server or is this something I need to use github for?
not an official answer, but I think you should use your own git server (or a public one like GH or BitBucket), and follow the steps in the Packaging article, especially the App Store section if you want your app to be publicly available in the Cloudron app store.
I suppose that your code will be hosted on git.cloudron.io if and only if it is officially supported by Cloudron on their app store, otherwise you cannot freely use their git server (and that makes sense).

I think this is more a question of "host your code, where your community is". Hosting on your own git instance is in so far problematic as others then only can (well if you have it publicly accessible that is) view your code, but would need an account on your server to participate (and do you really want to allow total strangers to create accounts on your system?).
When I created an account on git.cloudron.io I could just use the account creation tools of gitlab for that.
Edit: one thing that needs to be said is that there is a limit on how many repositories you can create with your user. When I got that limit in the past I cleaned up local forks, but I'd imagine that if your have a legitimate reason to extend that limit that this can surely be discussed with the Cloudron team.
@nexbit I have made many app packages for Cloudron in the past, I figured since this specific package lines up with another officially supported one (Minecraft Java server) that it might be hosted on the same git server. I'll just throw it up on github.
@murgero well, so I think you could just put it on GH first like you said, and then ask for inclusion in the app store. I suppose it will be transferred on cloudron's gitlab server from that point on..
@nexbit I'm not really looking for inclusion into the app store, just a safe, trusted place for users to install my app from. But thank you for the insight man

@murgero You are welcome to create repos on git.cloudron.io. Are you unable to create repos? Haven't disabled it, atleast consciously. For example, https://git.cloudron.io/msbt has created many custom apps.
@girish I get an error message when trying to create a repo - I thought maybe it was a 0 user repo limit but maybe it's an issue in the back end.
When I create a repo, I get "Invalid namespace" no matter what I name my repo's. If you need a username to troubleshoot, I believe it's just "murgero" like on here.

@murgero can you try again? For some reason your account there had a project limit of 0
@nebulon All good - Thanks!
@nebulon i have the same probleme, unable to create or fork repos with my account 'https://git.cloudron.io/TheNils'.
my account is not the same as my cloudron's forum account because i've lost the phone with the 2fa app for this account (don't know if it's the cause...)
