Git for Debian
--------------

When setting up a git.example.org server, there are several things to
configure to make everything work nicely together.  All this is optional.

1. Run a git-daemon.  This allows people to use a git:// URL to access your
repositories.  This package provides the git-daemon program, to enable a
git-daemon service, configure inetd(8) to launch it on demand, or install the
git-daemon-run package to run it permanently:
 cat >> /etc/inetd.conf <<EOF
git stream tcp4 nowait nobody /usr/bin/git git daemon --inetd --base-path=/var/lib /var/lib/git
git stream tcp6 nowait nobody /usr/bin/git git daemon --inetd --base-path=/var/lib /var/lib/git
EOF

Or:
 apt-get install git-daemon-run

Wait five seconds for the service to be picked up, and check its status and
logs:

 sv stat git-daemon
 cat /var/log/git-daemon/current

The git daemon by default looks into the directory /var/lib/git/ for
repositories (this is configured in /etc/sv/git-daemon/run).  It expects
the repositories' .git subdirectories in /var/lib/git/, symlinks pointing
to the corresponding subdirectories in the repositories are just fine, e.g.:

 ln -s ~pape/git/foo/.git /var/lib/git/foo.git

Now git-clone git://git.example.org/git/repo will work.

2. Install rsync.  This allows people to use rsync:// URLs to access your
repositories.  You then need to add a stanza to /etc/rsyncd.conf that looks
like this:

[git]
    path = /var/lib/git
    readonly = yes

Now git-clone rsync://git.example.org/git/repo will work.

3. Configure a web server for git.  This allows people to use a http:// URL
to access your repositories.

Here's an example for an apache virtual server.  Add a stanza to your apache
configuration that looks like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName git.example.org
    ServerAdmin webmaster@example.org
    HeaderName HEADER
    # bogus but safe DocumentRoot
    DocumentRoot /var/lib/git
    ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/git.example.org-error.log
    CustomLog /var/log/apache2/git.example.org-access.log combined
    Alias /robots.txt /var/www/cvs.robots.txt
    Alias /static /usr/share/gitweb/static
    Alias /git /var/lib/git
    ScriptAlias / /usr/share/gitweb/gitweb.cgi
    RedirectMatch permanent "^/~(.*)$" "http://example.org/~$1" 
</VirtualHost>

Now git clone http://git.example.org/git/repo will work.  And if you
installed the gitweb package, http://git.example.org/ now will display a
list of repositories, making them accessible through a web browser.
