IP blocks

We have a number of IP ranges blocked to prevent huge amounts of spam to the GitLab instance.

The IP blocks are configured in /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb in the nginx['custom_gitlab_server_config'] option. Additionally there is a custom error page for when the IP is blocked, which is stored at /var/www/html/gitlab-ipblock.html.

After making changes to the gitlab.rb, you need to run sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure for the changes to be applied to the actual config files. Under no circumstances edit the generated config files directly, always use the gitlab.rb config.
