My private repo from GitLab is private and exclusive only for me. It is about doftiles, apps and fonts, the first due to confidential information and the latter two due to copyrights and EULA laws.
I tried all the ways with the command
svn, even with the parameters
password. I also tried to config the host proxy in the file
~/.subversion/svn, but nothing worked. Then I realised
svn can not read the private repos from GitLab and does not support it.
I wanted to use
svn because it allows me to select multiple folders and files instead of the whole repo, to export and using
stow to pick the sources up for the destinations. The
git does not have those features because it exports as a compacted file, unlike Mega, which downloads normally the files without compacting them. The git submodule downloads the whole.
