GitLab Ultimate is now free for Self-Hosted open source projects


#1

GitLab announcement here: https://about.gitlab.com/2018/06/05/gitlab-ultimate-and-gold-free-for-education-and-open-source/

I think securedrop.club project satisfies the eligibility criteria and can benefit from numerous features provided by GitLab Ultimate. The features offered are listed here and the application process is listed here.

I suggest we look into the details and send a MR to add the project to a list of open source projects using GitLab Ultimate.

So GitLab Ultimate is proprietary software and a Free Software project can get a license free of charge, right? I’m not a big fan of proprietary software, even when it does not cost money.
