Checkout projects (with GNU parallel)

parallel --colsep '\t' --jobs 4 -a repo.list git clone {2} {1}

Build list of git repositories

find -type d -name ".git"  | xargs realpath | xargs dirname > path.list  

Report repository branch or checkout branch

cat path.list | xargs -I{} sh -c "cd {}; echo {}; git branch"
cat path.list | xargs -I{} sh -c "cd {}; echo {}; git checkout master"
cat path.list | xargs -I{} sh -c "cd {}; echo {}; git checkout develop"

Note: when you are migrating repositoires you should use git clone --mirror

Update: try adding get all available repositories. if you don鈥檛 get all projects and just get 404 you鈥檙e fucked. Try creating the list from what you see browsing GitLab or try to get Admin-Access.
