I wanted to have a discussion about relocating our gitlab content to github so that we may better track MOC and OI Labs work on a single project board.
Historically the Mass Open Cloud repositories have existed github as have the Harvard and BU repositories being used for the NERC. In addition, other team's working on related projects have voiced a preference for github.
This creates friction for the dev team's because Open Infra Labs was set up in gitlab and it is, for example, difficult to track the work on a single project board.
We have been tracking the details in this ticket: https://github.com/CCI-MOC/ops-issues/issues/39
Proposed solution including issues which need to be resolved
We propose relocating open infra labs gitlab content to an Openinfralabs github location. Assuming we move forward we would like to do so before more processes become baked into our use of gitlab.
• confirm web site may be driven from github and schedule migration
• moving content over
• import issues - bring over discussions
• redirect repositories to github
• update openinfralabs web site with links
Alternatives & History
Some history – initially we created the repository in the opendev and migrated to git in response to feedback from various operators. We chose gitlab at the time because of the perception it is more open then github.
1. Continue with current state – keeping OpenInfra Labs on gitlab.
2. Migrate MOC/NERC etc. to gitlab. This would be difficult both because of the size of existing repositories, need for retraining and the number of processes already built around the github model.
3. Revisit opendev – at this time it does not address the ease of access issues initially raised by operators.
I will summarize this note in irc and point to both the ticket and this email.
