I'll be using Gitlab professionally on Arch Linux. So as soon I become a TU (if it happen the Arch Linux community accepts me ;)) I think I'll help Sven-Hendrik Haase in this process. Packaging Gitlab as a single person is indeed a hard task.
There is more to reliability of service than correct and reliable packaging. By any means Gitlab isn't "fire & forget" type of project and with my infra team hat on, I'm completely unwilling to spend my evenings or lunches on making sure it's running properly.
Why don't talk with GitLab people to get a free hosted solution? As you can see in his page they offer "the very best full gold plan of the death" to Open Source projects. In this way you can devote your resources to other tasks and forget the Git/GitLab administration.
I'm quiet happy that we are still running everything on our (community sponsored) infrastructure without relying on third party's. This has a lot of benefits, we own the data, we can migrate freely to an alternative and we don't rely on externals messing things up or changing their offering.
A sponsored hosted platform sounds amazing, but having a vendor lock in isn't really :-)
