Morning Everyone,

Just a reminder we have the AMA session with GitLab scheduled for tomorrow,
September 10th @ 1330 UTC on #fedora-meeting-1.

We have a hackmd doc open until COB* today if you would like to add some
questions for GitLab.

*COB means Close of Business**

** Business time means my timezone closing time of 1700 UTC :)

The hackmd link is here https://hackmd.io/RW8HahOeR7OJPON1dwuo3w#

And if you want to contribute to the discussion on GitLab, they have a
forum here

Thanks all and have a great day!
