- Login to the system at https://gitlab.gbar.dtu.dk/ (choose LDAP, and use your student login and password, e.g. s123456)
- Git is built up around the idea of using ssh keys for interaction with the repository. It's a good idea to create/add ssh keys to the system immediately. Information on how to add the ssh keys can be found at http://doc.gitlab.com/ce/gitlab-basics/create-your-ssh-keys.html.
- DigitalOcean has a nice write-up on how to use the GitLab user interface - check out https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-gitlab-user-interface-to-manage-projects.
- GitLab makes it easy to share projects between groups or move a personal project into a group project, if you have the appropriate rights in both places. Projects can also be moved between groups if the projects has expanded beyond its original purpose.
- Make sure you give your project a good descriptive name - i.e. something other than just "My project".
2. Fill in the name and description of the project
3. Under the "Import project from" choose "Any repo by URL"
- You will need to know a couple of things from your existing project, specifically a user added under the project (not just your own login) and the project URL
- For a project "TestingGit" with the user test and password 1234 the URL will look something like http://test:firstname.lastname@example.org/git/s123456/TestingGit.git
4. Click "Create project", and the import will start - this step should be fairly quick, but might take some time depending on the size of the repository
5. You are now ready to use your project with GitLab!
