Similar to this question, I would like an alternative to github that can be self-hosted. These are my requirements (they differ in 2 and 11 from the linked question). Requirement 11 (or a workable alternative) is a must.

  1. Relatively good web UI: source code and commit browsing are a must.
  2. Support for git and subversion. Support for mercurial is a plus.
  3. SSH shell (repositories must be accessible over ssh, instead of just http, even though at least git supports all operations over http relatively well)
  4. Permissions: at least
    • private/public repositories
    • read-only and full access
    • Same permission set for web UI and for SSH (when granting/modifying permissions, it should be reflected to both)
    • preferably integration to LDAP (both users and groups for permissions)
  5. Pull requests (aka. merge request)
  6. Administration tools: creating repositories, granting access
  7. Simple issue tracker: creating tickets, commenting, closing, tags/labels
  8. Preferably search, including tickets, users, projects, filenames and inside source code
  9. Preferably forking from web UI
  10. Preferably runs in Linux
  11. Access git repositories with subversion client (e.g. via an http(s) URL).

Must be either open source (which means it is okay if it is missing some minor functionality) or affordable (>2400€/year for 30 users is too expensive).

For background, I would like to retain our existing subversion repository, and reference a specific version of an external git repository (buildroot in this instance). Occasionally I would want to update the external to a newer version by switching the external reference and fixing any errors related to the updates. If possible, I would also like to store a clone of the external git repository within the self-hosted system.

If the above is not possible, can you recommend an alternative method to achieve the same purpose?

GitLab Community Edition seems to satisfy most of your criteria.

  • Welcome to Software Recommendations! Currently your answer is a bit thin. Could you elaborate more about how this tool accomplishes the goals of the OP? We like our recommendations to be more than just a link and "This could work". Did you use the tool? What are your experiences? What are its up and downsides?
