Configure docker volumes in .gitlab-ci.yml
For CI jobs that build containers and need to interact with and share docker volumes, it would be helpful if the volumes could be specified in .gitlab-ci.yml (and optionally cleaned up by the runner), instead of having to specify the volumes in config.toml.
Add a new parameter in .gitlab-ci.yml called
volumes which can be used either globally, or in an individual job, that will bind mount the volume. E.g.:
volumes: name: named-volume path: /path/to/volume/in/container mode: rw persist: true
mode correspond to the three parts of a docker volume mount string (i.e.
-v named-volume:/path/to/volume/in/container:rw). The
persist keyword is an optional parameter to tell the runner to leave the volume alone at the end of the job, otherwise it will be deleted.

None that I know of, although I've seen references to a gitlab-ci.yml version 3 that might support this? Apologies if so.
