I try since 2 days to receive the confirmation email for an account I setup. This account is needed as it has the educational gitlab license associated with it.
This isn’t really something the forum can help with. You’ll need to raise a support ticket and select the
Gitlab.com (SAAS) user accounts and login issues option.
I agree. But the issue is that you have to put a repo path there and other items that this account does not have yet as it is a new account. So in this sense it is a catch22 and I do not know how to contact GitLab and raise this issue which is quite unfortunate.
