Git and GitLab are here to help with managing projects, merging development between different people, with different time zones and giving Sealed Air the ability to manage all of its source code in 1 location.

Q11. What Is The Cost Per User Or Project?

GitLab is an Open Source software application under MIT license running on our private and secure instance. There is no cost to add users to GitLab.

Q12. Should I Be Concerned With Confidential Or Proprietary Solutions In Gitlab?

GitLab is ideal at storing source code for projects; however, confidential information such as passwords and credentials should not be stored in git. With regards to hosting our code, there should be no issue with the hosting of code that is either open licence (MIT, GPL, and BSD), we have created or licensed for us to use, however, code that has a licence for limited use should be handled carefully. If you are not sure, please contact Risk Management or Legal teams.
