Abstract

A war story from the front-lines solving a problem with git-over-ssh on GitLab.com. I'll take you all the way from the first reports of errors, through diagnosis and experimentation, to resolution, along with a quick look at the some elements of the bigger picture. Includes some concrete lessons learned, from the technical to the social. Also graphs.
