The front page you link to below contains the following:

Requirements include:
· OSI-approved open source license: All of the code you host in this GitLab group must be published under OSI-approved open source licenses<https://opensource.org/licenses/category>
I believe https://gitlab.com/petsc is the group (it has a Group ID) and hence everything under https://gitlab.com/petsc would need to have an OSI licence.

  *   Benefits of the GitLab for Open Source Program apply to a namespace. To qualify, every project in an applicant’s namespace must carry an OSI-approved open source license.

Again, GitLab when you use language that a reasonable person may not understand you provide a link to its meaning. Is the entire petsc/* the namespace? If so we have to be careful about all the packages and oddballs in petsc/* that may not have license information etc. Or is petsc/petsc a name space and this all we care about?

   Did we drop the ball on this?  I cannot find out what "tier" PETSc is currently in, I hunt around the settings pages for PETSc and cannot find this information. GitLab should provide a link to how to check this for your project in all their nagging to get people to do something, please at least be informative in your nagging, don't expect me to read your mind.
