What is Salsa?

Salsa is the name of a collaborative development server for Debian based on the GitLab software. Salsa is supposed to provide the necessary tools for package maintainers, packaging teams and other Debian related individuals and groups for collaborative development.

The service is available at https://salsa.debian.org


After various discussions about the future of Alioth, the Alioth Sprint in August 2017 gave birth to the initial setup of the upcoming Salsa service. The productive weekend resulted in a working prototype and was launched as a beta in December 2017. It left its beta status in January 2018.


Salsa offers all features of gitlab.



Salsa has these administrators (IRC nick in parenthesis):

  • Alexander Wirt (formorer)
  • Joerg Jaspert (ganneff)

Any maintenance windows will be announced on the debian-infrastructure-announce mailing list (low-volume).
