Gitolite uses a slightly funky url scheme that can wreck havoc with other tools. In particular I wanted to use Google Repo (worst name ever by the way, htf do you search for git and repo to find this?)
Anyway, here's how…
The solution is to tweak the almighty
fetch url. Note the
:22, those are key.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <manifest> <remote name="burgundywall" fetch="ssh://git@www:22" /> <default revision="refs/heads/master" remote="burgundywall" sync-j="4" /> <project name="foo" path="foo" remote="burgundywall" /> <project name="bar" path="bar" remote="burgundywall" /> </manifest>
So go ahead and commit and push that. In our example case lets call it
Then to actually clone and sync overlord,
mkdir overlord cd overlord repo init -u ssh://git@www/overlord repo sync
keywords to help with finding this page: “google repo”, git-repo, gitolite
The errors I was getting were:
$ repo sync Fetching project foo Fetching project bar FATAL: R any git@www/foo kneufeld DENIED by fallthru ...
because the fetch url was duplicated in the project config file.
