./devel/gitolite, Gitolite allows you to host Git repositories easily and securely

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.6.5nb1, Package name: gitolite-3.6.5nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Gitolite is an SSH-based gatekeeper providing access control for
a server that hosts many git repositories. Without gitolite, each
developer needing to push to one of the repositories hosted would
need a user account on that server; gitolite lets you do that just
using SSH public keys tied to a single, common, user that hosts
all the repositories.

Gitolite can restrict who can read (clone/fetch) from or write
(push) to a repository, and who can push to what branch or tag -
an important issue in corporate environments. Other features include:

* access control by branch-name or by modified file/directory;
* per-developer "personal namespace" prefixes;
* simple but powerful configuration file syntax (with validation);
* config files (and authority for maintaining them) can be split;
* easy integration with gitweb;
* comprehensive logging;
* easy migration from gitosis.

Bump PKGREVISION for perl-5.24.0 for everything mentioning perl.

Log message:
Update to 3.6.5

2016-02-20  v3.6.5  allow creator check to be bypassed during mirroring

                    handle new style ssh fingerprinting correctly (thanks to
                    Robin Johnson)

                    allow pre-auto-gc as a repo-specific hook

                    optimise mirror pushes for heavily used repos

                    create-with-reference trigger: on repo creation, setup
                    objects/info/alternates for a server side alternate object

                    'mirror status all all' prints a list of repos that have
                    *some* error, which is arguably more useful for further

                    allow incrementally adding more repo-specific hooks

Update to 3.6.4

2015-11-01  v3.6.4  a ref-create bug in wild repos was fixed

                    some contrib code related to AD integration, and to
                    redmine user aliases

                    teach Alias.pm a few new tricks

                    remove a race condition in 'create' command that affected
                    the 'default roles' setting

                    make 'who-pushed' more efficient (local push logs, and
                    'tip search')

                    'gitolite query-rc' learns '-d' ('--dump') option

Log message:
Update to 3.6.3

* Use GITHUB framework.

2015-04-26  v3.6.3  allow limited use of 'git config' using the new 'config'

                    accept openssh 6.8's new fingerprint output format

                    (finally!) allow limited symlinks within ~/repositories;
                    see commit 8e36230 for details

                    perms command now lists available roles

                    minor backward compat breakage: 'perms -l repo' no longer
                    works; see 'perms -h' for new usage

                    allow gitolite-shell to be used as $SHELL (experts only;
                    no support, no docs; see commit 9cd1e37 for details)

                    help with 'git push --signed' using a post-receive hook to
                    adopt push certs into 'refs/push-certs'; for details see

                    new 'transparent proxy' feature for git repos; see
                    src/lib/Gitolite/Triggers/TProxy.pm for details

Log message:
Update to 3.6.1

* Improve MESSAGE

2014-06-22  v3.6.1  experimental rc format convertor for "<= 3.3" \ 
users who
                    have already upgraded the *code* to ">= v3.4".  \ 
Program is
                    in contrib/utils.

                    giving shell access to a few users got a lot easier (see
                    comments in the rc file).

                    allow logging to syslog as well (see comments in the rc

                    new 'motd' command

                    redis caching redone and now in core; see

2014-05-09  v3.6    (cool stuff) the access command can now help you debug
                    your rules / understand how a specific access decision was
                    arrived at.

                    mirroring: since mirroring is asynchronous (by default
                    anyway), when a 'git push --mirror' fails, you may not
                    know it unless you look in the log file on the server.
                    Now gitolite captures the info and -- if the word 'fatal'
                    appears anywhere within it, it saves the entire output and
                    prints it to STDERR for anyone who reads or writes the
                    repo on the *master* server, until the error condition
                    clears up.

                    mirroring: allow 'nosync' slaves -- no attempt to
                    automatically push to these slaves will be made.  Instead,
                    you have to manually (or via cron, etc) trigger pushes.

                    (backward compat breakage) the old v2 syntax for
                    specifying gitweb owner and description is no longer

                    macros now allow strings as arguments (thanks to Jason
                    Donenfeld for the idea/problem).

                    the 'info' command can print in JSON format if asked to.

                    repo-specific hooks: now you can specify more than one,
                    and gitolite runs all of them in sequence.

                    new trigger 'expand-deny-messages' to show more details
                    when access is denied.

                    git-annex support is finally in master, yaaay!

                    new 'readme' command, modelled after 'desc'.  Apparently
                    gitweb can use a README.html file in the *bare* repo
                    directory -- who knew!

2013-10-14  v3.5.3  catch undefined groupnames (when possible)

                    mirroring: async push to slaves

                    (some portability fixes)

                    (a couple of contrib scripts - querying IPA based LDAP
                    servers for group membership, and user key management)

                    allow groups in subconf files (this *may* slow down
                    compilation in extreme cases)

                    make adding repo-specific hooks easier (see cust.mkd or
                    cust.html online for docs)

                    smart http now supports git 1.8.2 and above (which changed
                    the protocol requirements a wee bit)
