  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.
    ...then I realised it's just one line :)

  1. get "info" for users other than yourself

    if you have read access to the admin repo, you can say
        ssh git@server info user1 [...]
    Original idea and code by Karteek E.  The motivation is to quickly and
    easily check what perms a user has.  Technically nothing that you can't
    glean from the config file itself but it serves as a double check or a
    mild debugging aid perhaps.
    However note that the branch level rules are much more complex and they
    do not, as yet, have any such "helpful" aids.  Life is like that
    Sitaram Chamarty committed Feb 7, 2010
  2. compile: tighten up the 'git config' feature

    Gitolite allows you to set git repo options using the "config" keyword;
    see conf/example.conf for details and syntax.
    However, if you are in an installation where the repo admin does not
    (and should not) have shell access to the server, then allowing him to
    set arbitrary repo config options *may* be a security risk -- some
    config settings may allow executing arbitrary commands.
    This patch fixes it, introducing a new RC variable to control the
    behaviour.  See conf/example.gitolite.rc for details

  3. rsync: restrict the "path" part of the received command

    Although I have washed my hands off the security aspect if you use
    external commands, that doesn't mean I won't make them as tight as I can
    ;-)  Right now, this is just a place holder -- if people use it and
    complain that the pattern is too restrictive, I'll change it.

  4. (IMPORTANT; read this in full) no more "wildrepos"

    The wildrepos branch has been merged into master, and deleted.  It will no
    longer exist as a separate branch.  Instead, a new variable
    called $GL_WILDREPOS has been added which acts as a switch; when
    off (which is the default), many wildrepos features are disabled.
    (the "C" permissions, and the getperms (etc.) commands mainly).
    Important: if you are using wildrepos, please set "$GL_WILDREPOS = 1;" in
    the RC file when you upgrade to this version (or just before you do the

  3. $shell_allowed needs to be passed to specal_cmds

  5. auth: new subcommand "htpasswd"

    great idea by Robin Smidsrød: since users are already capable of
    authenticating themselves to gitolite via ssh keys, use that to let them
    set or change their own HTTP passwords (ie, run the "htpasswd" command
    with the correct parameters on behalf of the "git" user on the server)
    code, rc para, and documentation.  In fact everything except... ahem...
    testing ;-)
    and while we're about it, we also reorganised the way these helper
    commands (including the venerable "info" are called)

  1. Tell gitweb about repo owner via git-config

    Gitolite uses projects.list to set the owners for gitweb's use.
    Unfortunately, this does not work for gitweb setups that set
    $projectroot to a directory, thus generating the list of
    repositories on the fly.
    This patch changes that: gitolite now writes the gitweb.owner
    configuration variable for each repository (and properly cleans up after
    itself if the owner is removed).
    The patch causes gitolite not to write the owner to projects.list
    anymore, as this would be redundant.
    The owner also needs no longer be escaped, so this patch removes the
    poor man's 's/ /+/g' escaping previously in place.
    Note that I am not a Perl coder. Thus there are probably better ways to
    implement this, but at least it works.
