These questions are for GitLab SaaS service.
Previously, public projects have access to paid features such as mirroring by pulling from remote public git repositories without a subscription. I uses this features to sync some upstream repositories to gitlab as a backup.
Recently, I tried to setup a mirror pulling from a Github repository recently and I found that the feature is disabled. Public projects that were created before are not affected.
I do not see any announcements of this change. Do I need to upgrade to a paid plan to use this feature? Or is it just a bug in Gitlab and it will be fixed in the future?
