I have a user (In academia) that recently dropped a class. His account was removed from the gitlab-ce server. This user then re enrolled for the class. When he went to create his project for the class, he was denied.
Upon looking at the directory “/var/opt/gitlab/git-data/repositories/” his namespace was still there. When I looked inside this directory, it was showing the repository that was created before his account was removed.
I searched for the project using the web interface and can find no reference to it. If I try and clone it, it is denied as not being found. I have waited 4 hours and no clean up has happened.
Is there an easy way to remove this project?
