GitLab is currently archived by Software Heritage:
Gitlab is a Git hosting platform. Its fork Heptapod also supports Mercurial.
Software Heritage’s Gitlab lister queries the project API (eg. api/v4/projects for gitlab.com) anonymously.
It provides a
last_activity_at field for each repository, matching the last time
the repository (TODO: or project? does it cover stuff like PRs and issues?) was updated;
which is passed as
last_update to the scheduler.
Software Heritage does not have a specific loader for Gitlab/Heptapod; the Git and Mercurial
loaders are used instead.
Therefore, origin URLs are Gitlab/Heptapod’s canonical URLs for the corresponding Git
or Mercurial repository:
New Gitlab/Heptapod instances can be submitted to Software Heritage through the Add Forge Now interface.
Software Heritage currently does not archive extrinsic metadata from Gitlab or Heptapod due to a limitation of the Gitlab API.
