  1. standalone demo of Data::Dumper problem

    [needless to say, this branch will be deleted eventually...]
    Please see comments in the program to
    understand what is happening.  Typically anyone with large
    configurations see this happening.
    I have worked around it by coding around the need for a custom sort sub,
    and as you can see there is at least one other way to make it work (look
    for WTF in the code!) but those are just work arounds...

  3. dps: gl-setup may have to create ~/.ssh and touch the authkeys file...

    I've been unwilling to create the authkeys file if it does not already
    exist, because it represents a significant change in accessibility for
    that account.
    However, in the "distro package" scenario, one wants to make it as easy
    as possible for the end-user (who is actually an admin for the gitolite
    being hosted on his account, let's not forget) to use.
    And it seems that in some cases that might mean he does not (yet) have a
    ~/.ssh even...

  1. easy install: suppress that misleading "fatal"

  2. easy install seemed to out of the GIT_PATH loop

    for some reason, I apparently did not test easy install with a
    non-standard path!  Fixed...

  1. compile: make it easier to move repos into gitolite

    when repos are copied over from elsewhere, one had to run easy install
    once again to make the new (OS-copied) repo contain the proper update
    We eliminate this step now, using a new, empty, "hook" as a sentinel and
    having "compile" check/fix all repos' hooks.
    Since you have to add the repos to conf anyway, this makes it as
    seamless as possible.  The correct sequence now is
      - (server) copy the repo at the OS level
      - (admin clone) add it to conf/gitolite.conf, commit, push

  1. add conf/VERSION to .gitignore

    conf/VERSION is programmatically created, not manually, so you shouldn't
    be checking it in, which means it looks cleaner to explicitly put it in

  4. auth: do not anchor the pattern given for expand

    Currently the pattern of expand command is line anchored.  This is
    different than in e.g. grep, and causes extra work to add '.*' prefix
    and/or suffix in many use cases.
    The new semantics now mean you might get more matches than you would
    have gotten earlier.  However, the expand command is still totally
    undocumented, so I think it is acceptable to change the functionality.
    This patch removes the anchoring.  So for earlier behavior the specified
    pattern needs be in form of '^<pattern>$'.  The default pattern is also
    changed from '.*' to '^', so there might be even a small speed
    improvement. =)

  1. Merge branch 'master' into pu (damn!)

    stupid me; committed the easy install patch on master *and* pushed,
    instead of on pu...
    Since I dont want to rewind master, we end up with this completely
    unnecessary merge.

  3. compile: move checking of reponame/repopatt/username out of expand_list

    let expand_list be just that "expand a list", and leave checking to be
    done outside.
    otherwise, commit 690604d has the side effect of restricting refs to
    $REPOPATT_PATT, and so for instance barfing on the perfectly valid
        RW+ refs/(?!heads/master) = alice bob

  1. htpassword: disallow empty passwords

    [TODO: allow a callback for a password checking function, such as
    "passwd_policy_check".  Question is where the function would go.
    ~/.gitolite.rc is the only possible place among the current set of files
    but I'd rather leave that as a list of simple name=value lines for all
    sorts of reasons.  So maybe something like ~/ (analogous to
    the "" in the sources I supply), which would get "require'd"
    if found, and would contain all user-defined functions like this one...
    needs some thinking about]

  1. compile: users and repos have groups... why not refs?

    this came up in some other discussion with bremner.  As usual I said no
    I won't do it because I don't see any real need.

  3. (package maintainers read this) install doc updated

    (about this commit)
        The install doc now describes both the ways of installing gitolite.
        It also has a handy appendix for package maintainers describing what
        they need to do.
    (about the "dps" -- distro packaging support -- commit series)
        This commit is the last in the chain meant to make gitolite more
        friendly for package maintainers.
        Frankly, I never really thought gitolite would get big enough or
        important enough for someone to package it, and I always did just
        the bare minimum I needed to get it working, first for myself, then
        anyone who hopped onto #git and asked.  As a result, it had some
        quirks in terms of what is expected where and so on...
        Luckily, it didn't take a lot of changes to fix it, and this series
        of commits should help make it very easy to package gitolite for
        system-wide use.

  4. make VERSION work in both types of setups

    The old install method will now use conf/VERSION instead of src/VERSION everywhere.
    The new one, if you use the builtin make file to "make branch.tar" will also create just such a file
