I don't want to go down that path if gitlab could remove this ability in
the future.

That raises the question on how people backup their repos?  I started
rsync'ing many years ago when had some kind of failure back when didn't provide any backups for users.  So I still want to be able
to do some kind of backup, just in case.

At least for the gitlab pages on, I can get the artifacts
from a build.  I can grab those or maybe have gitlab CI automatically copy
the files to some host.  (Have to figure out how to do that, though.)
