At the turn of 2020/2021, the Tango community faced the challenge of a massive migration of all Tango software repositories from GitHub to GitLab. The motivation has been a change in the pricing model of the Travis CI provider and the shutdown of the JFrog Bintray service used for artifact hosting. GitLab has been chosen as a FOSS-friendly platform for storing both the code and build artifacts and for providing CI/CD services. The migration process faced several challenges, both technical, like redesign and rewrite of CI pipelines, and non-technical, like coordination of actions impacting multiple interdependent repositories. This paper explains the strategies adopted for migration, the outcomes, and the impact on the Tango Controls collaboration.
