Sure, sounds good. A warning: gitlab-runner thinks it can use all the
free disk space, so you may want to figure out how to reconfigure it
to not use all the space.

I put some manual git syncing code in /home/git-mirroring so you can
add the new gitlab instance as an additional target repo.

Instructions on https://libre-riscv.org/resources/server-setup/git-mirroring/

Do note that I configured iptables to specifically block all local
addresses from docker, so if you try to run gitlab inside a docker
container it will probably not work.

Should be relatively easy to use gitlab's API.

Luke, do note that we are currently relying on the combination of
github and debian salsa to host Kazan's source code, so if they both
kick us out, we'd have to move all the source. We could probably add
some more mirrors using the above git-mirroring script since due to
your selection of port 922 instead of port 22 for ssh, gitlab doesn't
support push mirroring to libre-riscv.org.
