Thanks for the reply. I feel that Kallithea has a lot of promise and
hope it continues to grow and succeed. At the moment, after testing with
the hosting at, we ended up using the GitLab CE
instance at for now.

It's understandable that all this is a lot of work. As it works out, the
reason exists is because, upon request from Matt Lee, GitLab
themselves agreed to host a CE version for those who didn't want to use
the proprietary version at

Anyway, we'll see how things go in the long term. I certainly understand
the challenge of finding people to do all the work needed to host things.

All the best,
