No, none of them are. Someone (I think it was Travis Cross) set up a
repository for the Parenscript site sometime around 2010, but I did
not continue using that. Emacs' version-control backup files (because
they work transparently with TRAMP) do what I need.

I would not move them elsewhere.

Ok, now this makes a lot of sense. I had assumed that the
everything-in-Gitlab approach would, if anything, also involve more
system administration. If it makes running easier,
that overrides my concerns.
