  1. I don't think the global config is necessary when creating a bare repo. After all, no commits are being made.
  2. Rahab's version of git doesn't seem to allow you to specify a directory name with init. You have to:
    mkdir PROJECTNAME.git; cd PROJECTNAME.git; git init --bare --shared=group
  3. I'd prefer us just not to offer http access, and since this may go away at some point in the future I think we shouldn't include this in our instructions. Http is useful only for people whose company firewall blocks outgoing git connections, and if we get a request from someone like that we can consider enabling it then.
  4. After cloning, origin will already be set up as a remote, so git push should be sufficient. At the most it should be git push origin master. Putting the whole ssh URL in the instructions seems offputting.

Actually, I've just realized we don't really offer http access: takes you to the gitweb interface. Access is still possible using the right URL (ie but this is an anomaly and I plan to take this away eventually.

So I'm taking out the http references altogether.

Filling with content

Since the repo won't be empty for long, isn't it better to put up with the warning rather than put a junk file and commit into it?
