  • The Perks of a High-Documentation, Low-Meeting Work Culture

    It's what we use, but there are two big show-stoppers to make it more user-friendly:

    - the default index on the sidebar doesn't handle sub-directories well ( - we use a pipeline to refresh an index page, but it's duct-tape and annoying to setup.

    - can't edit only a section of a page, so if the page has a few sections, I often lose track of what exactly I wanted to change (maybe the WYSIWYG helps here, have to admit I have not used it much)

    Open Source Project is a type of project with source code in which you can inspect, modify and implement some new ideas. It is just like social coding. Basically, it means, it's free to use, and free access to modify. In GitHub people can not only comment on your code, and fork your project to share it but they can also contribute back to the project by adding some features to it or by fixing some bugs, Just like StackOverFlow where all the developers provide answers to the various problems posted by the another developers. A lot of open source projects are available on popular hosting sites like GitHub, GitLab, or SourceForge
  • Gitlab 15.5

    I was a happy gitlab user for a long time. As ops manager I led the migration from GitHub to gitlab 3 years ago. At the time it seemed like a great decision. Now, as tech director I am looking to switch us back. It is very clear in my interactions with gitlab they do not care about small companies. Their pricing structure is bonkers and has completely catered out the middle. IMHO the jumping the shark moment was the IPO.

    I want gitlab to succeed. I’ve spent several sessions with various teams there sharing my feedback and it goes nowhere. I am not arrogant enough that I expect it to be implemented; there are no follow ups even for clarity or to say “thanks but no thanks”.

    How is their code search so broken at this point? What features are they cranking out that are more important than making the site usable? Right now it looks like they are solely focused on implementing pricing increases, storage limits and user restrictions. I have had a representative say to me why don’t you upgrade to premium- as if a $99/seat/user/month is palatable to any company or a realistic solution.

    I get that companies need to make money, but their approach is tone deaf. They had an issue where pricing was discussed and it ended up changing nothing [0].

    I agree with the sentiment in this thread. It seems there are two common themes. 1- the inconsistencies in the UI are frustrating many people. 2- The pricing that probably made them an attractive alternative is no longer there.

    I look forward to the incoming PR damage control in this thread per company policy [1], that again will lead to no changes.

    No they don't. Why do I know? Because it's FOSS:

    > it would be nice if there was an option for a group-level Readme on Gitlab.

    Thanks for the idea. The proposal for Group READMEs is discussed in this thread: Suggest adding your preferences for the proposed solutions, thanks.

    > The hosted instance uses EE features so parent is correct to say that the site is not open source.

    It’s OSS but with proprietary parts. That’s the issue with the term "open-source": their source code is indeed open [1] but it’s not 100% free (as in freedom).
