Gitlab CE: omnibus package with apache and mysql

Good evening everyone!

right now I heard about the possibility to install Gitlab using the built-in package manager (e.g. apt on Ubuntu).
Currently I’m using the Community-Edition built from Source Code and I want to switch to the automated version with the package manager.
Apart from Gitlab my server runs MySQL and Apache so I don’t want to install other services for the same thing.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards
