02 Version Control
Version control, also known as revision control and source control, is the management of changes to information. A version control system keeps track of software versions throughout development. A distributed version control system allows many developers to work on a given project without requiring that they maintain a connection to a common network.
If you only need a manual export of the contents of a repository on GitLab, you can simply download the source code instead of using git to clone it.
