I’m currently setting up a GitLab instance for a small team, for which I’m using the Docker installation method as documented.
Now I’ve stumbled about the repository storage documentation, in which it is stated that “GitLab directly accessing a directory containing repositories is deprecated.”
The data is currently stored at
/var/opt/gitlab/repositories/@hashed. Do I have to worry about that?
I would prefer not to increase the overall complexity by another software component (Gitaly).
