Hi!

This was announced to core contributors last week, let's now make this
official: we've switched to GitLab!

Table of contents
=================

- What was migrated
- What you should do now
- Known issues
- Where to ask questions and report problems

What was migrated
=================

We have migrated:

- all information that previously lived on Redmine,
such as issues, milestones, and user accounts

- many, but not all, of our Git repositories

What you should do now
======================

To follow the transition instructions, see:

https://tails.boum.org/contribute/working_together/GitLab/transition/

The documentation about how we use GitLab starts there:

https://tails.boum.org/contribute/working_together/GitLab/

Known issues
============

- Updates to repositories used to build our website (tails.git and
any of its underlay repositories, such as mirror-pool.git) are not
automatically propagated to our production website. Only sysadmins
can manually propagate such updates.

So far I've been synchronizing tails.git's master branch to our
production website at least once a day. If you need anything beyond
that, ask me or tails-sysadmins@???.

- Our translation platform is not integrated with GitLab yet.

Where to ask questions and report problems
==========================================

There are most certainly some rough edges, confusion, and bugs caused
by this migration, so:

- If you have questions or trouble with the new *workflow*, please
either email <tails-dev@???> or attend one of the two "Ask Me
Anything" sessions I'll host on the tails-dev XMPP chatroom:

    - Wednesday, June 3, 11:00-12:00 CEST
    - Thursday, June 4, 16:00-17:00 CEST


- If you encounter *bugs* in the GitLab setup or *security issues*,
please instead email <tails-sysadmins@???>.

Thanks for your patience,
cheers,
