Re: Debian and GitLab Open Source Partnership
I'm wondering: what is the status of the gitlab partnership discussed
I saw that Debian is listed on Gitlab's partner page at , and reached
out to inquire about resources for the cloud team. Unfortunately, they
weren't able to find any details regarding the partnership.
So I'm just trying to track down:
1) whether or not anything happened here
2) if Gitlab's listing is a mistake
