Clone and push using ssh not working for /sbin/nologin 'git' user #193

I'm following this installation guide (Centos 6.5).
Also tried with 6.6-stable (not working too).

But i could not push or clone the repository if the 'git' user's shell is set to /sbin/nologin.
To make it work, i need to change the shell into /bin/bash.

Any clue to make /sbin/nologin work?


I have the same issue, but I'm also not able to push or clone if I gif /bin/bash shell to the git user.


Fixed in

It will be merged to master soon.
