            Bug ID: 29619
           Summary: Setup gitolite for projects
           Product: sourceware
           Version: unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Infrastructure
          Assignee: overseers at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: mark at klomp dot org
  Target Milestone: ---

https://gitolite.com/gitolite/ (perl) packaged as gitolite3

 Gitolite allows a server to host many git repositories and provide access
 to many developers, without having to give them real userids on the server.
 The essential magic in doing this is ssh's pubkey access and the authorized
 keys file, and the inspiration was an older program called gitosis.

 Gitolite can restrict who can read from (clone/fetch) or write to (push) a
 repository. It can also restrict who can push to what branch or tag, which
 is very important in a corporate environment. Gitolite can be installed
 without requiring root permissions, and with no additional software than git
 itself and perl. It also has several other neat features described below and
 elsewhere in the doc/ directory.

A project using gitolite only needs one user account on the host (with one
admin git repo containing the ssh keys of the developers with git push access).

We can even run it inside a project specific container or vm to have more
isolation.
