Free Git Repos!

Posted in Announcements on Jan 28, 2017

We're delighted to announce we've just finished setting up GitLab on our server! This means anybody with an @lancaster.ac.uk email address can create an account, host private, shared, and public git repositories for absolutely anything. We encourage students at the University, faculty and researchers, members of staff, novices, dogs, cats, hackers, University organisations and everybody inbetween to participate. Using this service allows for local storage on campus but accessible anywhere in the world.

We'll be hosting this website there from now and we'll be posting updates on this blog whenever we make major changes to the git server. Currently we're using the latest version of GitLab (v8.15.0) and intend to roll updates whenever they become available.

Happy gitting!
