[Tails-project] Proposal: our own GitLab instance, sysadmin…

- Admins are super busy and their latency can unpredictably be anywhere between minutes and many months. - The limits set on user registration are problematic for a project like ours: I'd rather not reject new contributors merely because they happen to use GMail. - Unclear whether we can get preserve authorship during the migration. - Hard to migrate all our settings elsewhere.
This one is very similar to the immerda option, except our sysadmins need to do much more work, both in the next few months and then in a recurring manner:
- Makes our somewhat weak sysadmin team even more of a single point of failure than it currently is. - Puts lots of pressure on our sysadmins (e.g. need to apply security updates very quickly) - High recurring costs in terms of labour - We would need to speed up deployment of new hardware as we haven't the capacity to host GitLab yet.
- tl;dr: too many unknowns wrt. feasibility and the future - immerda is ready while Tor is not (and it's not clear when it will be). - immerda is happy to host us while we don't know yet for Tor. - immerda has been hosting stuff for us for 10 years. We know that they're reliable and the communication works great. - Might require lots of sysadmin work to isolate our CI from the rest of our infrastructure. - Unclear whether we can get preserve authorship during the migration. - Hard to migrate all our settings elsewhere.
- Salsa is not designed to host confidential data. - We don't have good communication channels with the Salsa admins. I did not even dare asking if it would be OK to move our stuff there. I'm not super bold socially but still, this may give you an idea. - I'm not confident Salsa admins will ever want to adapt to our needs (or even keep coping with them). - We can't preserve authorship during the migration. - Requires lots of sysadmin work to isolate our CI from the rest of our infrastructure. - Hard to migrate all our settings elsewhere.
- Not running FOSS - No communication channels and as non-paying customers we should not count on it. - I would not count on their legal resilience to keep our confidential data safe. - Requires lots of sysadmin work to isolate our CI from the rest of our infrastructure. - Hard to migrate all our settings elsewhere.
