first time user setup

  • Send your SSH public key to one of the gitolite admins.
  • Setup your SSH config. Example:
    • Leave 'stsp_gitolite' as-is (we're using stsp's IN-Berlin account)
Host oophone-gitolite
User stsp_gitolite
  • Test it:
$ ssh oophone-gitolite
PTY allocation request failed on channel 0
hello alice, the gitolite version here is 1.5.4-2+squeeze1 (Debian)
the gitolite config gives you the following access:
    @R @W    testing
Connection to closed.
  • Clone repos:
$ git clone oophone-gitolite:<repo>

Our main repos is called 'oophone', so

$ git clone oophone-gitolite:oophone
