Thanks -- indeed doing this on GitLab would be easy, and I'm happy to
help.  I have just set up CI/CD of OATH Toolkit (which uses many gnulib
modules) and it was pretty straight forward, adding this file


results in these build logs:


The only thing to do is to push the repository to gitlab and have the
CI/CD setting for the project set up to point at the .gitlab-ci.yml file
that is used.  And to write the .gitlab-ci.yml file, of course.

GitLab provides free (up to some usage limits..) runners, and if there
is a docker image for the OS, it should Just Work.  As you can see
above, Alpine exists.  Proprietary OS's probably requires someone to
install a GitLab runner on it and connect it to the GitLab gnulib
