Private Projects on gitlab

Hi Dave,

Since we didn't used to have private repositories on and
GitLab was simply restructuring the status quo *and* I wanted to move
forward without having lengthy policy discussions first, I disabled the
option for users to create private repositories.

As a admin, I'm not opposed to allowing private
repositories if that stimulates use of the site and thereby also stimulates
having public repositories.

As a admin, I'd like the CLF to give their "Ok" too and as
a CLF board member, I think that if we can provide private repositories at
a rate, we could use that money to cover the CLF's and's
operational expenses; in that sense, I'd like it not to be donations to, but to the CLF in the general sense. We'll need to talk to
Harm about this model though, because there could be tax implications.

I'm not sure if the above is the answer you were looking for? Should we
talk about it in one of our board meetings for CLF?
