SecureDrop's GitLab instance will be shut down on November 13


Hi folks,

As you may know, after a long period of graciously hosting and maintaining the infrastructure, @dachary has requested that Freedom of the Press Foundation take over hosting of this infra.

We have now moved Weblate over to FPF infrastructure and have previously moved the UX wikis to GitHub.

The next and final step is to shut down GitLab. We’ve re-configured Weblate to use GitHub, which eliminates the need for a separate GitLab instance.

We therefore intend to shut down the GitLab service by end-of-day Pacific Standard Time on Tuesday, November 13, 2018.

If you need to access any data on, we would kindly request that you migrate it before that date.

If you require more time, please let us know!


This work was completed as scheduled (thanks, @mike!) .
