fedorapeople.org git hosting support
fedorapeople.org now has support for hosting git repositories including accessing them via the git:// protocol for anonymous downloads as well as providing gitweb. This should be considered beta.
~/public_git directory on fedorapeople.org
ssh email@example.com "mkdir ~/public_git"
Put your git repository in
As an example, here is one method to create an empty repository on your local system and upload it:
mkdir repo.git cd repo.git git init --bare touch git-daemon-export-ok cd .. scp -r repo.git firstname.lastname@example.org:public_git/
This creates a bare repository (i.e. a repository that has no working directory). It contains just the files that are part of the
.git directory of a non-bare git repository (the kind most users are accustomed to seeing).
Pushing to your repository
At this point your new repository is still empty. To push changes from a local repository:
cd /path/to/local/repo git remote add fedorapeople email@example.com:public_git/repo.git git push --mirror fedorapeople
This creates a mirror of your local repository. All of the branches and tags in the local repository will be pushed to the fedorapeople repository.
If you only want to push selected branches, amend the
git push example. For example, to push only your local master branch:
git push fedorapeople master
Cloning your repository
To clone your repository, use a command similar to:
git clone git://fedorapeople.org/~your_fedora_username/repo.git
It is also possible to clone your project via the http:// protocol. In order for this to work, you must arrange to have
git-update-server-info run whenever you update your repository. Typically, this is done with a post-update hook script. However, the user home directories on fedorapeople.org are mounted with the noexec option, which prevents the script from running. Instead, you may create a symbolic link to
git-update-server-info in the hooks directory of your repository:
ssh ~firstname.lastname@example.org cd ~/public_git/repo.git/hooks ln -svbf /usr/bin/git-update-server-info post-update
You can clone your repository over http:// with a command similar to:
git clone http://your_fedora_username.fedorapeople.org/git/repo.git/
Browse your project via gitweb
You can see your project listed in gitweb once the project list updates (hourly). Note that this URL may change.
