Hi all,

I finally managed to make time and wrote a book on gitolite!  It's at http://www.packtpub.com/gitolite-essentials/book.

People who know of my struggles with taming gitolite's documentation (main problem: there's too much of it!) might appreciate a more structured, organised, approach to documenting all the important parts of gitolite.

PS: g+ seems to be showing some other book's picture for the link, but if you click on it it goes to the right place.

Help Me  - 
 
We are using "Bonobo Git Server" (git server for Windows) and Tortoisegit as revision control client. 
We use git to version control for all our projects (both source code and documents)
<project-name>
  DOC
        pre-project
        mornitoring
        post-project
  SOURCE
        trunk
        tags
        branches

Recently, our manager requested to have access control as below:

For DOC folder: Manager (Read/Write), Developer (Read only), 
For SOURCE folder: Manager, Developer (Read/ Write)

I have been using git for while but never experienced access control. Could someone advise me about this please?

Hi,

After merging a branch with  'git merge --squash themergedbranchname'
the 'themergedbranchname' is listed in non merged branch.
 ( git branch --list --no-merged )

What can I do for git to consider it merged ?

+Ian Monroe BitBucket branch level permissions require specifying the users. It is not equivalent to users being able to allocate branches for themselves and is not an alternative to fork and pull.

this has always puzzled me about eclipse-git..  where should my repo be located?   if my project is located here
/home/steve/eclipse-workspace/myproj/
then should my repo be in that same directory.. i.e. should i have my .git folder here?
/home/steve/eclipse-workspace/myproj/.git/

it seems like during 'import from git' type operations that it wants to place the repo somewhere else.. like /home/steve/git/myproj.git/...

anyone familiar with this obscurity can shed some light?

Yeah, I definitely will. To be honest, I was giving it a week to come up with as many provoke solutions I could.

This week I will then try and implement them. Ultimately I will be moving away from externals (therefore also from symlinks), however, during the migration, having them is a necessity, as I can't afford having my team wasting time with having to reconfigure their projects all over again since they will be using svn-git for a while until they're all happy and comfortable with git.

I will now try your solution, and also msys2.

I have also looked at subtree, bit as far as I can see, from a repository level perspective, it's not much different from submodules.

I'll update it here once I have more information, but in the time being thanks you so much for your help +Michael Geddes! Your help and dedication is much appreciated!

I will also make sure I wrote a blog post about this once I have it working

Well everyone can make mistakes. Saying you should never rebase published changes is a bit too much for me. 

Projects I work on generally has a policy about force pushes which basically boils down to "Do what you like in branches starting with wip/". That's a good compromise I feel.

Tim Pope argues for a particular git commit message style in his blog post: http://www.tpope.net/node/106 Here is a quick summary of what he recommends: First line is 50 characters or less Then a blank line Remaining text should be wrapped at 72 characters His blog post gives the rationale for these recommendations (which I will call "50/72 formatting" for brevity): In practice, some tools treat the first line as a subject line and the second ...

I want to add an image to my GitHub Readme.md file. I found one link - http://mopsled.com/2012/12/github-screenshots/ for the same to do. But having a bit confusion about the code below :

cd repo-name
git checkout --orphan gh-pages
git rm -rf .
rm -r .

Why git rm -rf . and rm -r . is needed here ?
