cloning the admin repo
This is the third step in using gitolite, after [install] and [setup].
To clone the admin repo, go to the workstation where the public key used in 'setup' came from, and run this:
git clone git@host:gitolite-admin
NOTE that (1) you must not include the
repositories/ part (gitolite handles
that internally), and (2) you may include the ".git" at the end but it is
If this step succeeds, you can add [users], [repos], or anything else described [here][adminrepo].
If this step fails, be sure to look at the [ssh] documentation before asking
for help. (A very basic first step is to run
ssh git@host info;
[this][info] page tells you what to expect).
