Garming did this on my suggestion:
The issue is that, in order to progress work while the Gitlab.com
runners are busy, we also declare 'shared' on our own runners.
However we haven't worked out how to do the docker-in-docker thing
there, and probably don't want to (due the security risk).
The alternative is to stop our runners declaring 'shared' and make our
jobs that can run on either just require 'docker'.
This is probaby the better approach. It may mean CI for older branches
take longer when gitlab.com is busy, but master is where all the action
is. For our private CI (for security embargoed stuff) we will still
In the meantime, just try again later, our own runners have a slower
tick cycle to try and loose the race if they can.
