The GitLab open source edition, available from Bitnami, is a developer tool that allows users to collaborate on code, create new projects, manage repositories, and perform code reviews. When using GitLab, users can keep their code on their own servers, either in the cloud or on-premise. For additional peace of mind, the free community edition even features enterprise-grade features such as a mature user permissions scheme and support for high availability. Bitnami GitLab is bundled with GitLab CI, a continuous integration server. Just point your projects at the CI server and automate all your tests.
Why use the Bitnami Gitlab Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run GitLab in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Gitlab Stack is:
We track every release of GitLab and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of GitLab as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying GitLab or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami Gitlab Stack stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

I wish I had done my own installation using gitlab's excellent onmibus install package. Bitnami's install is different in so many little ways. Files are in different places or don't exist. that means that if you need to do any kind of configuration -like backups- that can't be done in the web front end, you won't be able to use gitlab's instructions.
I know bitnami has their own way of backing up but that's just one example of administration that can't be done in the gitlab way using the bitnami install.
Now that I've tried installing gitlab myself I can say that it really isn't any harder than downloading the bitnami VM.
I tried to install gitlab with your bitnami-gitlab-7.14.3-1-linux-x64-installer.run file on an updated fresh installed ubuntu server 14.4.3.
In the end of the installation occurs errors like:
Error running su gitlab_ci -s /bin/sh bla bla : Permission denied.
Awesome, but i would like to know is there anyway to mention the datastorage that will be affected to the VM since de begining.
I just wanted to stop in and say. "Thanks for making it so easy to start a git server." I personally have the technical expertise to put a git server together and have thought of doing it many times for my own personal use. But, with family and a job it's hard to find time to do the little things like that. Having a prebuilt VM available that I can slap into VirtualBox and run within 5 minutes makes time a non-issue. Thanks again!!
GITLAB with bitnami is simply awesome but ..
I need a simple way to even update to new versions of GITLAB without any pains ... come on guys that would be more value added and fun for to use so
