I’ve had this project https://gitlab.com/arcctgx/slackbuilds forked from upstream SlackBuilds.org / slackbuilds · GitLab for a few years now, and I’ve been using it to contribute to upstream from time to time.
Yesterday I noticed something is broken. My fork still exists, but it doesn’t behave like a fork anymore:
- I can’t use my fork to create a new merge request for upstream,
- there is no “Forked from SlackBuilds.org / slackbuilds” message in my project page,
- my fork disappeared from the list of forks in upstream project page,
- in closed merge requests from my fork there is a message “The source project of this merge request has been removed.” (e.g. system/pigz: Updated for version 2.4 (!60) · Merge requests · SlackBuilds.org / slackbuilds · GitLab).
Looks like my project has somehow lost its fork status.
How could that happen? I don’t recall doing anything to “un-fork” my project (if that’s even possible). Is there any way this can be fixed, or should I just create a new fork?
