Working on getting the first people online

For the past couple of days I've been working on the production environment for Gitlab.com. I say 'I' instead of 'we' because Marin is on a well deserved holiday in Norway. I'm using Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Chef which I both like a lot.  I've taken an existing Chef recipe as a starting point but that was quite a bit different from the current installation manual. So I'm now making a new recipe. It has taken a bit more time as I expected. I've had no problem setting up  a database service and an email service using the AWS services. But storing the repositories and attachments on an separate EBS volume has brought out some things that are a bit brittle in the configuration of Gitlab. I look forward to getting the first 10 people online this week. When Marin is back we'll also polish our public chef recipe so other people can leverage it.
