GitLab for Fedora

An effort to package GitLab for Fedora.

This project has a dedicated mailinglist at (HOW TO APPLY? LINK TO ARCHIVE?)

There are weekly meetings in the Fedora Admin irc channel: Location: Start: 2014-03-20 - 19:00:00 UTC End: 2014-03-20 - 20:00:00 UTC

This started as a Google Summer of Code project

Currently the following gems are still missing from Fedora

System dependencies

TODO Clean up system dependencies
Most of these packages are needed if you compile ruby from sources, or install/build gems with native extensions.

The equivalent of Debian's build-essential is:

# yum groupinstall 'Development Tools' 'Development Libraries'

The rest of the packages can be installed with:

# yum install zlib-devel libyaml-devel openssl-devel gdbm-devel readline-devel ncurses-devel libffi-devel curl git openssh-server redis libxml2-devel libxslt-devel libcurl-devel libicu-devel python

Below is the table for an easy reference.
