I am using the official docker version of Gitlab. When the git client is not used for too long, I obtain the following error message for the git fetch command:
GitLab: API is not accessible fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
After I log into my Gitlab web account, the git client wake up and the git fetch works again.
How can I enforce the git client to be always operational?
