Don’t ask me why neither how, but I’ve lost the gitosis’
post-update on my server. So, among others, the
.gitosis.conf wasn’t updated anymore…
Ok, let’s start at the beginning. I’m hosting some git repositories on my server using gitosis. Today I tried to create a new repository by editing the
gitosis.conf in the
gitosis-admin repo, but I couldn’t push the new created repo to the server:
Damn, looking at the server all rights through the gitosis home seem to be ok. But I was wondering why the
$HOME/.gitosis.conf of the gitosis user wasn’t updated!? How could this happen?
After some thoughts I found out, that the link
$HOME/repositories/gitosis-admin.git/hooks/post-update was pointing to nirvana:
Seems that the file
/usr/share/python-support/gitosis/gitosis-0.2-py2.5.egg/gitosis/templates/admin/hooks/post-update was deleted through an update (one week ago I updated
gitosis 0.2+20090917-9 -> 0.2+20090917-10 ).. Didn’t find an announce of it or any workaround, but I identified a template in
/usr/share/pyshared/gitosis/templates/admin/hooks/post-update . So the solution (hack) is to link to that file:
$GITOSISHOME with the home of your gitosis user, mine lives for example in
Now every think works fine. If anybody has a better solution please tell me!
