Deleted an imported project, stuck as "pending deletion" and can't reimport it

So as an unpaid user, I imported a repo from GitHub to use with GitLab CI. I mucked about a bit, deleted it, then wanted to import it again after.

The import page shows it as successfully imported, and links to the deleted URL for the project (group_name/project_name-deleted-project_id) which 404s. Under the group’s projects listing, it shows it as “pending deletion”, but querying and deleting via API return 404 as well.

I’m struggling to figure out how to fully delete this project. I can re-import it via URL but it’d be nice to not have a project “pending deletion” forever, and I’d also prefer to use the more streamlined import method if possible.

I have the same problem and would like to know how to figure this out. I can’t re-import the same repo from Github after deleting it from Gitlab. This doesn’t make sense to me? All it’s doing is cloning the repo?

When I click “Go to project” it’s error 404
