What Software is Behind Gitlab Forums?

All,

I really love the Gitlab Forums site, can I ask if this is an inhouse developed Gitlab product or a FOSS/COTS product?

Thanks!

It’s the Discourse forum. It’s open source and was started by Jeff Atwood, same guy who founded Stack Overflow.

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply!

Actually are you sure its still open source? If so mind pointing me at the free version their site seems to only have the paid hosted solutions.
