There’s no comparison between the two here: https://about.gitlab.com/features/#compare
…and yet I’ve just finished setting up both and have found major differences between the two.
- Community Edition has an “Admin Area”. Gitlab.com does not.
- Gitlab.com has WAY more options for projects than the Community Edition - merge methods, issues template, description template, approvers, container registry…
- Even the Groups page has one additional option - Member Lock.
So what am I missing here? Did I just waste money on a VPS to self-host the Community Edition when the free Gitlab.com version does so much more? Am I losing any Gitlab features by deciding on the Gitlab.com version instead of Community Edition?
