Getting a GitLab project account

Jump to navigation Jump to search

(Editors: see note below)

Not all of the project space here is public. Some of it is publicly readable, like this, but write access in particular is restricted to members, so to participate on you will need to open an account here. Unfortunately, although we would like to be able to integrate accounts across the various platforms we use, we don’t currently have the means to do that. Apologies, because that makes things more complicated than is ideal.

To get an account to access’s GitLab projects here, follow these steps.

  • Send your email address and Mastodon handle to and ask to be added, and the working groups you want access to. (Note that your request will be copied to all members on the alias, who share responsibility for processing it, but if you want to avoid this contact a single admin directly)
  • We’ll use (login details are in pass database) to create an email alias <your handle> forwarding to the email you gave, and notify you when it’s ready.
  • Use this email address to register an account on this GitLab instance (click here or on the Sign In/Register button visible above if you’re not already signed in)
  • Once you have an account, request access to the appropriate GitLab groups here, which will notify the admins.

You can then post issues, comment, and will get notifications about any changes or issues you’re involved in or subscribed do. (You can change your notification settings on this settings page, accessible from the drop-down menu linked to your user avatar, above right)
