Earlier this week the 11.7 version of GitLab was released. Last night we updated code.fbi.h-da.de to run the new version. The Runner CI/CD infrastructure will follow soon due to the need to rebase some local patches.
[January 27, 2019: Runner is now on 11.7, too]
(Non-)Update on Email Integration
One of the new features in GitLab 11.7 is the support of email integration in combination with…less capable mail servers like Exchange. Unfortunately, it relies on setting up a catch-all mailbox on the Exchange side. This entails routing all h-da.de mail not matching an existing address to GitLab instead (including typos and mail sent to non-existing aliases, which would no longer bounce!). Probably not a good idea.
The relevant tickets requesting this functionality have to stay open for a little longer. Sorry to disappoint. We will continue to work with university central IT (which manages the h-da.de mail systems) to find a feasible solution for providing this functionality.
