Thanks for the fantastic write up!

1) FYI as of 1 October 2020 the GitLab free tier was reduced to 400 minutes of CI/CD.

2) The initial CI/CD run failed for me with below message in the test stage. I haven't figured out the fix for this yet.

Sorry for a late reply to you comment, good points!

1) Article is now updated. I didn't know GitLab reduced the minutes from 2000 to 400, which is kinda sad :(

2) Make sure you have Postgres as a service for the test job, the DB url is correctly setup and check your config/test.ex that is has proper configuration. Seems like when establishing the connection to DB fails.

3) Added to! :)
