If the projects are not used, they are exported and deleted from GitLab. The exports are kept in S3 storage for another four weeks as a precaution.
If users still need their project, they can simply commit it within the next eight weeks. The project will then be automatically unmarked.
Alternatively, if users are unable to make a change to their project in GitLab, they can request an extension of their project by twelve months by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure that the extension request can be correctly assigned, the ID and name of the project as well as the associated GitLab instance (git.rwth-aachen.de/git-ce.rwth-aachen.de) should be included in the request. The project ID can be found in the project overview under the project name.
