Install app from Gitlab instead of Github. Is it possible?

giltab.com is automatically changed to github.com from the repo url whenever I try to get an app from my Gitlab repository. Why does that happen? What should I do to get my app from gitlab.com ? Or frappe/bench forcing me to use github.com instead of any other git repositories???

Whenever I run following command, gitlab.com is automatically changed to github.com. I do not want to clone from github.com I want to clone my app from gitlab.com or some other custom git repo. How???

$ bench get-app git@gitlab.com:erpnext-apps/my_custom_app.git

git clone git@github.com:erpnext-apps/my_custom_app.git --depth 1 --origin upstream
Cloning into ‘my_custom_app’…
git@github.com: Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I also noticed the same thing last week. I had to workaround by downloading and installing my Apps manually.

I haven’t had time to debug yet, and see whether Bench or Frappe repositories are the culprits.

It seems this was a known issue and has been fixed in frappe-bench v5.7.4. Upgrade frappe-bench and there should be no issue.

Upgrade bench using :

$ pip install -U frappe-bench

Hi @brian_pond. Obviously the remote git server was hard-coded in bench CLI. It seems the issue is now fixed in frappe-bench v5.7.4. I was able to get an app from my Gitlab’s repo by using the latest bench version (ie. v5.7.4).
