Frequently Asked Questions

Is my project too small to qualify?

At this time, we are only partnering with large open source organizations and projects that are well-known within the wider open source community. If you have thousands of community members and users, or more, we encourage you to apply. If you are part of a smaller community, we encourage you to apply to our GitLab for Open Source program. Through this program, qualifying open source projects can get access to our top tiers for free.

How's this program different from the Contributing Organizations Program?

The Contributing Organizations Program is designed to recognize and support organizations who are making a sustained commitment to contributing to GitLab. This Open Source Partnership program is aimed at building relationships with prominent open source communities and engaging in co-marketing initiatives.
