KDE Invent / Gitlab account repeatedly being deactivated

Hi Ivan,

This is an automated action that takes place every night, where accounts
that have not been used within the last 120 days are deactivated.
It exists purely for security reasons, to prevent credentials such as SSH
keys and API tokens from accounts that are no longer in use being used to
harm invent.kde.org.

Looking at your account, it appears to be largely unused, which would
explain why you are seeing this behaviour.

In terms of continuing to use your account, all that is needed for you to
do is login again.
