Introduction of GitLab Introduction of GitLab

The University IT and Data Center operates now GitLab, a new IT service for collaborative version management of software or other text-based data.

GitLab can be used for research projects for which own projects/Git repositories can be created. The system offers central management and bug tracking functions and a wide range of tools for automating processes (CI/CD) and various options for publishing software.

GitLab is available free of charge to all holders of a Uni-ID, i.e. employees and students of the University of Bonn. Read access is also possible worldwide as long as the viewing rights of a group or project have not been restricted. The GitLab instance is operated on its own servers and is completely independent of gitlab.com, i.e. data does not leave the University of Bonn (as long as corresponding repositories are not explicitly made visible university-wide or publicly).
