  1. new program for emergency addkey; run without args for usage

  1. (please read full commit message) upgrade behaviour changed

        **upgrades no longer touch the config or the keydir**
    
    When you first install gitolite, the easy install script has to do two
    *distinct* things:
    
      * install the software
      * create and seed the gitolite-admin repo with a minimum config file
        and the newly created pubkey
    
    That's fine for an install, because nothing exists yet anyway.
    
    Subsequent invocations of the script should only do the first task (so
    that gitolite itself can be upgraded), and not attempt to fiddle with
    the config file and pubkeys.
    
    Unfortunately, until now I had not been separating these two activities
    cleanly enough.  For instance, the commit message for 8e47e01 said:
    
        IMPORTANT: we assume that $admin_name remains the same in an upgrade
        -- that's how we detect it is an upgrade!  Change that name or his
        pubkey, and you're toast!
    
    Ouch!
    
    So now I decided to clean things up.  The "Usage" message tells you
    clearly what to do for an upgrade.
    
    Should have been like this from the beginning, but hey we got there
    eventually :)
    
    ----
    
    Code-wise, this is a major refactor of the easy install script.  It uses
    an old forgotten trick to get forward refs for bash functions ;-) and in
    the process cleans up the flow quite a bit.

  2. easy install: handle upgrades specially

      - "it's an upgrade" is decided by presence of gitolite.conf (not a pubkey)
      - admin_name optional (and will be ignored if given) for upgrades
    
    plus a lot of comments and some minor text changes

    Sitaram Chamarty committed Oct 25, 2009
  3. install and compile: learnt a '-q' flag (not for manual use!)

    ...only for easy install to use in "quiet" mode

  4. the rc file can now be in one of 2 places...

    Packaging gitolite for debian requires the rc file to be in /etc/gitolite.
    But non-root installs must still be supported, and they need it in $HOME.
    
    This means the rc file is no longer in a fixed place, which needs code to find
    the rc file first.  See comments inside new file 'gitolite.pm' for details.
    
    The rest of the changes are in the other programs, to replace the hard-coded
    rc filename with a call to this new code.

  1. doc fixes...

      - README: add a "what" section first, plus a few minor fixes
      - doc/5:
          - remove reference to obsolete ml branch URL; point it to the right
            place with the right section name
          - change text to reflect the fact that p-t-a is now the default!
    Sitaram Chamarty committed Oct 14, 2009
  2. easy install: much more idempotent...

      - example config file is now all comments (should have been that way anyway)
      - we detect if it is an upgrade and act accordingly (see below)
    
    IMPORTANT: we assume that $admin_name remains the same in an upgrade -- that's
    how we detect it is an upgrade!  Change that name or his pubkey, and you're
    toast!
