wp-dependency-installer: GitLab option not working

The GitLab option is not working. New URI is needed.

I believe GitLab removed the GET access to the repository archive for security reasons (https://about.gitlab.com/2018/11/28/security-release-gitlab-11-dot-5-dot-1-released/) and now requires access using the API (which is available through GET as well).

New URI:


More info here: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/api/repositories.html#get-file-archive

The token needs “api” scope for this to work.

The workaround is to use the “direct” option instead of GitLab and use the above URI. You now use the project ID instead of the name/project.

Great, I think I know what to do to fix this. I’ll get something pushed to develop and ping when it’s done for testing. Thanks.
