Instructions to create a public git repository on our semi-public git repo host

Create an empty repo

local-workstation:$ ssh git.lsdev.sil.org
rahab:$ git config --global user.name "YOUR NAME"
$ git config --global user.email "some@email_maybe"
$ newgrp lsdevrepo
$ cd /srv/git/lsdev/public
$ mkdir PROJECTNAME.git
$ cd PROJECTNAME.git
$ git init --bare --shared=group
$ umask 2
$ touch git-daemon-export-ok
$ echo git://git.lsdev.sil.org/PROJECTNAME.git >cloneurl

Others can clone this repository using:

$ git clone ssh://USERNAME@git.lsdev.sil.org/srv/git/lsdev/public/PROJECTNAME.git

for read-write access or:

$ git clone git://git.lsdev.sil.org/PROJECTNAME.git

for read-only access.

Pushing is possible with:

$ git push ssh://USERNAME@git.lsdev.sil.org/srv/git/lsdev/public/PROJECTNAME.git

Filling with content

After you created the shared repo you might want to add some existing files, or at least commit a dummy file to prevent a warning when cloning the repo (warning: You appear to have cloned an empty repository.):

local-workstation:$ git clone ssh://USERNAME@git.lsdev.sil.org/srv/git/lsdev/public/PROJECTNAME.git
$ cd PROJECTNAME
$ cp -a ~/some/files/to/copy . && git add . # copy existing files
$ echo > dummy && git add dummy # or create a dummy file
$ git commit -m "Initial commit"
$ git push origin master
