GitLab is open source code collaboration software based around the Git source control framework. It allows users to create their own repositories and share them with other UMIACS users/groups or publicly. Additionally, it has features allowing a built-in wiki, code review, and issue tracker for each project. A full list of features can be found on the GitLab website.

All code is hosted on-site on UMIACS servers. We allow users to have 5 projects with a soft limit of 1G per project. UMIACS Staff can help create Lab groups (namespaces) and delegate authority to manage the group to one or more faculty members.

To get started, navigate to the following URL in your browser and enter your UMIACS Krb5 credentials:
