Hello! I'm trying to use GitLab more often (instead of GitHub) and as I was creating a new project I noticed that "Other visibility settings have been disabled by the administrator."
Use case: As a data scientist who works with confidential data and performs analyses that are meant for internal use & eyes only, I would like to be able to upload my version controlled work to Wikimedia's GitLab instance without it being publicly accessible.
https://gitlab.wikimedia.org/help/public_access/public_access says this about Private repos:
Private projects can only be cloned and viewed by project members (except for guests).
They appear in the public access directory (/public) for project members only.
This sounds great for my use case as my current options are:
- For projects on my local machine and projects on our analytics cluster (stat100X hosts): copying to HDFS occasionally as a way to backup
- For projects on my local machine: using private repositories on GitHub with my individual (non-organization) account
