There is an api endpoint for jobs
<https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/api/jobs.html>. We could write a cronjob
which polls the api every day for new jobs and then saves the logs for
those jobs locally.

BUT I personaly think instead of investing time into workarounds because
we don't have gitlab hosted ourselves, we should rather invest time to
host it ourselves. Why not try to host it on the new talos 2 server.
Does it have a public IP? We will probably run into problems, but hey,
we are building a CPU on that architecture, it would look nice if we
host our development tools on such architecture as well. And if there
are larger problems we could bring them to IBM, which probably use
gitlab in high quantity and might have the muscle to ask for a quick

Hosting it on a donated x86 server I guess would be fine as well
