Announcing availability of Gitlab for the CentOS project

Wednesday, 10, November 2021 lgriffin announcement 2 Comments

You may recall that CPE ran a requirements session to figure out a future home for storing our source code. Gitlab was chosen as the destination based on the varied requirements. Over the past year, CentOS Stream has been developed through Gitlab. We used this period of time to test the workflows and we are now pleased to announce that Gitlab have kindly welcomed CentOS into their GitLab for Open Source program. We now have a hosted GitLab available for the CentOS community giving our community members additional options for both code and project management. We are working now to integrate the CentOS Account system into Gitlab allowing for seamless integration and usage of your account.


For clarity, remains the proper location for all source drops from RHEL and content for CentOS Stream 8. is the location for contributing to CentOS Stream 9. Any SIG content stored in may remain there for now, we are not yet calling for migration.

We would like to extend our thanks to Gitlab for this generous offer of support and Nuritzi Sanchez, a Senior Open Source Program Manager at Gitlab had this to say: We welcome CentOS into the wider GitLab community! We believe in the GitLab DevOps Platform and its ability to help communities like CentOS collaboratively and transparently plan, build, secure, and deploy software faster. We look forward to seeing the impact that the move to GitLab will have on their community.

  1. Will the Gitlab work with Fedora accounts, or just CentOS?

    1. Rich Bowen says:

      Both. CentOS and Fedora use the same authentication system, and so those accounts are, in fact, the same, as of earlier this year.
