Issue 2019.50 features: GitLab, various clean-ups


Currently we are cleaning up our GitLab users. The intention is to cut down the number of users because we are thinking about licensing our GitLab-CE platform. This step is not feature related (we have all what we need), what we would like to have is 247 uptime support. 😎 So yes, we are targeting the on-premise premium pack. To get ahead with this, we disabled all logins but LDAP. In the next step, we will onboard all our users with AzureAD Oauth (beside a couple of manual users). We try to get the system as cloud ready as we can because we would like to run it in one of the big clouds for different reasons. So stay tuned on this topic - we will write some reports about our progress next year for sure.


This weak we were able to delete a couple of systems from outdated projects. Some of them were replaced by successors, some others were shutdown finally. It is always very satisfying when you can shutdown some things. There are more than enough projects left and therefore tiding up old stuff is an important task to stay save and sound.


This week I started the annual appraisal interview with my team members and I think I will be able to finish it within the upcoming week. For me, this is an important task and it is always a good thing to reflect the last year about what was good, what could be better and what will be the plan for the upcoming year.
