The charter of this working group is to improve the operational efficiency of running multiple, large, independent GitLab sites without needing linear growth on staffing.
In this context,
An example of this type of instance would include GitLab.eu. The working group may possibly consider GitLab Federal, although this has to be an explicit decision, as operating federal entails clearances and such.
The following list outlines the order of deliverables per Multi-large Working Group Agenda on 2020-07-13, and then further refined on 2021-02-01. The goal of this list is to define deliverables for the Working Group such that its charter can be finite.
Note that not all stateful nodes are scoped here, notably PostgreSQL, and this is intentional.
For clarification, this working group is focused on horizontal scaling across multiple GitLab sites. Single-site scaling (e.g., GitLab.com) is already covered under the charter of the Scalability Team.
