  1. new method for passing usergroup info (warning: minor backward compat…

    … breakage)
    The old method of passing in usergroup info had some problems, which are
    now fixed.  It is also much easier to use now -- no more "wrapper"
    script, plus it should work identially whether you use sshd or httpd.
    See doc/big-config.mkd for details on the new method.
    Notes on problems with the old method:
    The old method for passing in usergroup info consisted of tacking them
    on as extra arguments to gl-auth-command, after the username.
    However, there are some problems with this method.
    Some actions in gitolite look for permissions for users other than the
    invoking user.  Determining permissions for gitweb and daemon is one.
    An admin asking for "info" on some other user, is another.
    However, the list of groups sent in via the command line
    pertains only to the invoking user, so these actions don't work
    correctly.  They may even pick up the wrong permissions.
    What it all boils down to is that we need group information for any user
    dynamically, instead of being passed a (static) list just for the
    invoking user.

  1. (minor glitch in sudo adc)

    thanks to jeff for finding it...
    committed Oct 6, 2010
  2. "sudo" adc

    The sudo adc should make life easier for any admin wishing to run an adc
    as some other user.
    As a result, the rmrepo adc also goes back to its simple roots.  Now you
    just run it via the sudo adc if you (as gitolite admin) needs to rmrepo
    some user's repo.

  3. gl-reflog adc: tighten permissions checks

      - dont do anything if he doesn't even have read access
      - move the GL_USER check to the right place!  (to when you actually
        will be doing something)
    That spurious check for GL_USER that we (re)moved would not only have
    shown an incomplete set of log lines, it would have made the wrong log
    line look like the "last" one.  (No real harm would result, of course,
    since the update-ref would blow up due to the actual SHA being something
    other than what it was expecting, but it would be confusing to the user)

  4. tighten up argument handling in ADCs even more

    More and more people are using ADCs, which I originally wrote just for
    adventure-loving people ;-)

  1. wildrepos doc badly needed update due to new features:

      - 79f0a5f ("(big one!) more than one wildcard may match a repo...")
        makes some of the dire warnings about this irrelevant
      - d1d2c3e and ad64f99 ("git config settings in wild repos: part 1" and
        "...part 2") makes this caveat also useless
    While we were about it, we added a quick intro and tried to make some
    other details a little clearer.

  1. towel needed more clarity

    for people who don't get the continual reference to towels when talking
    about the "gl-dont-panic" program, all I can say is that your education

  1. (http) first level error reporting now works

    I didn't know that remote-curl.c requires 200 OK even if you want to
    report an error.
    With Ilari's patch at [1] you'll get a more readable message but it is
    still good enough now.

  1. (http) gitolite without ssh? smart http support is here!

    As usual there's more documentation than code.
    Unlike usual, however, this isn't completely tested.  Please read the
    documentation for details of what works, what doesn't, what has been
    tested, what hasn't, and so on.

  2. (http) gl-setup changes...

      - only admin name needed, not pubkey file
      - setup HOME from GITOLITE_HTTP_HOME

  3. (http) issues of $HOME, startup (birth!), and death

      - deal with issues of HOME not being available...
      - "where_is_rc" finally has a purpose; see comment block before

  4. (http) auth: handle REQUEST_URI and friends

    TODO: if the verb doesn't actually contain "git-receive-pack", I am
    assuming it is some sort of read.  The list in services[] in
    http-backend.c does not seem to look like any other verb is a "write";
    need to check this with someone.
    For normal git commands:
      - PATH_INFO gives you the repo name
      - REQUEST_URI gives you the verb
      - we construct a fake SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND so the rest of the
        processing does not have to change
    For our special commands:
      - PATH_INFO is actually the verb
      - QUERY_STRING has the parameters
      - we again fake out the SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND
      - we print the extra HTTP headers in anticipation of the actual output
    Either way, we also fake out the SSH_CONNECTION so that the IP address
    can get logged ok
    And of course REMOTE_USER is now the incoming userid
    Finally, at the end, we exec GIT_HTTP_BACKEND instead of the normal one
