My guess is it’s actually supposed to say ”Git annex support has been completely removed in GitLab 9.0 (2017/03/22).”

If the services run under the ’git’ user, why is it that adding the ’git’ user to the ’redis’ group (with access to the socket) isn’t enough to give it access to the socket? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
With Gitlab 9.5.4-ce.0 and Apache 2.4.18, I had to set `DirectoryIndex disabled` for the Gitlab directory (in the vhost configuration) to fix this when using RewriteRules. (I’ve now switched to using ProxyPass instead.)
