GitLab: Automatic releases with CI/CD Pipelines

GitLab allows it, to execute commands after repository commits. With that, it’s possible to do automated software tests for code in the repository. A few weeks ago, a private project required automatic releases on GitLab at given dates – for example monthly. At the moment such a feature is not (yet) supported by GitLab (https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/63858)
