# GitLab-Rules### Accounts * FAU members: Automatic account creation via the "FAU Single Sign-On" button on the main page with your IDM credentials. Accounts are deleted at the end of your affiliation with FAU. * non-FAU members: Registration for specific reasons only (e.g. collaborative research projects), via [e-mail](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) by a FAU member. Non-FAU members are not allowed to be added as the owner of a repository or a group.### Repositories * Only for development of source code files (program code, TeX code, .txt files, etc.). * Binary files are to be avoided wherever possible. In particular no collections of images, videos, PDF files, Word documents, archive files, etc. * Owners of overly large repositories are automatically requested to be mindful of reasonable disk usage. * Repositories are deleted once all of their owners have been deleted. * Repositories should only be published by chairs, university groups, university facilities (see [FAQ](https://gitlab.cs.fau.de/meta/rules/blob/master/faq-en.md)).### Groups * Group names must not look like IDM identifiers (e.g. ab12cdef, siabcdef, snasdfoo, unrz123). * Group names must not be in conflict with names of lectures, university facilities, etc. * Groups will be deleted once all of their owners have been deleted.### Continuous Integration * Be mindful of reasonable disk usage for build artifacts. * Build artifacts must not be stored permanently.### Misc * The [common usage guidelines](https://wwwcip.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/cipPools/rules.en.html) of the university and the CIP pools of the computer science department apply as well.
