GitLab

Introduction

GitLab is a web-based Git repository manager similar to GitHub. GitLab can be self-hosted and we do just that with https://gitlab.opengeosys.org. For the moment all OGS repositories are still hosted at github.com/ufz but we store benchmark data files on our own GitLab because of storage limits on GitHub.

Setup an account

  • Creating a GitLab account can be done by simply using your existing GitHub account: click the GitHub logo (octocat) on the Gitlab sign-in page
    • You will be redirected to GitHub (please login there) and asked for authorization.
    • Your new user account will be blocked at first, please let us know we will unblock it
  • Once unblocked, on the ogs group page click the button Request access. We will then give access to the repo. If the button is not there we already gave you access.
