Disable code downloads

Is there an option to restrict the repo downloads from gitpod?
I have a requirement where I have a few developers working on my project. Since they are relatively new, I don’t want them to download the code to their desktop till I build my trust level. Gitpod seems to provide a remote workspace which partly solves my problem but I see an option to download the code. Is there a way to disable download option so that code cannot be downloaded?

We do not have that feature at this point.
Could you please add a feature request?

thanks @svenefftinge I have submitted a feature request.

This should be an essential feature as we thought that was the entire point initially. You can have a developer remote connect to a machine which is another option. https://girardmedia.com
