Sutou Kouhei commented on ARROW-5673:

GitHub Actions doesn't support self-hosted workers yet. GitLab supports it.

If we can use self-hosted workers, we can run tests that require GPU, ARM and 
so on by CI.

> [Crossbow] Support GitLab runners
> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: ARROW-5673
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-5673
>             Project: Apache Arrow
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Packaging
>            Reporter: Krisztian Szucs
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 2.0.0
> Description is by [~kou]:
> I want to use GitLab Runner instead of CircleCI.
> Because we can add custom GitLab Runners for us. For example, we can add GPU 
> enabled GitLab Runner to test CUDA enabled Apache Arrow build. We can also 
> increase timeout more than 5h for our GitLab Runners.
> We can use https://gitlab.com/ to run GitLab Runners: 
> https://about.gitlab.com/solutions/github/
> This feature isn't included in the Free tier on GitLab.com (it's available 
> with the Free tier for campaing for now (*1)) but GitLab.com provides Gold 
> tier features to open source projects (*2). So we can use this feature by 
> choosing "CI/CD for external repo" in "New project page" 
> https://gitlab.com/projects/new .
> (*1)
>     So, for the next year we are making the GitLab CI/CD for GitHub feature a 
> part of our GitLab.com Free tier.
> (*2)
>     As part of our commitment to open source, we offer all public projects 
> our highest tier features (Gold) for free.
