Since announcing the Gitlab.com plans we've been working on getting everything up and running. Part of this has been exploring the best way to install Gitlab.

Please file an issue if you have problems or suggestions. We would like to thank randx and tsigo for their feedback. One of the next things to work on for us will be the Chef cookbook for Gitlab.
