As long as you can push to the previous locations for Git
repositories: feel free to. We'll sync' them one last time to GitLab
at the last minute, after blocking access to the old, deprecated
locations. Your work pushed to the old Git remotes won't be lost.

While Redmine is down, if you need to view a Redmine issue, until the
migration to GitLab is completed, you can now replace with in the URL and access
our fancy new static archive of Redmine contents.

We have not reached the point of no return yet and there's still
a possibility we abort the migration. Fingers crossed!
