Have you reached the limit of the number of projects that you're allowed to have on the EMBL GitLab system? The EMBL GitLab maintainers can increase your limit if you ask them nicely 🙂 Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request an increase above the default limit.
Also, while we have your attention: would you like to join the team of maintainers of our GitLab system? The EMBL GitLab maintainers are a group of volunteers who administer the GitLab system and the server that the system runs on. It's a very small time requirement (I estimate ~30 mins per week on average) and is a great way to get to know how GitLab works, to gain some system administration experience, and to contribute to the Bio-IT community. If you're interested in getting involved, we'd love to hear from you via the email given above.
