Github users: please read the "wiki" link at the top of the page before submitting issues or pull requests.
If you're reading this on the main gitolite page on github, several IMPORTANT CHANGES have happened to gitolite:
A competely re-written version of gitolite has been pushed to the "master" branch, and is now the actively maintained and supported software. Do NOT try to merge this with your old "master" branch!
Versions v2.x are on branch "g2". It will be supported for security issues and serious bugs in core functionality, but not for anything less critical. Versions v1.x are completely unsupported now.
If you're an existing (v1.x, v2.x) gitolite user please spend some time with the documentation for the new version before upgrading. The main page leads to several useful starting points. The table of contents is a much more meaningfully ordered/structured list of links (instead of putting them in alphabetical order of the filename, like in g2!)
License information for code and documentation is at the end of doc/index.mkd (or you can read it online [here][license]).
