CERN provides access-controlled Git repositories. In a nutshell, a repository is created usually for an individual project and its access permissions are controlled by e-groups. So, the access and editing permissions for users of the repository are inherited from an e-group. For a quick start, a recommended procedure is as follows:

  • Request a new e-group.
  • Become not only an owner of the e-group, but also a member.
  • Request a new repository (perhaps one for testing initially).
  • Wait for a time (anything from 20 minutes to 17 hours) for the e-group permissions to propagate to the repository.
  • Clone your new repository using Kerberos authentication.
  • Fuck shit up.
  • Push to the central repository.

owners and administrators

Changed:
<
<
There is one owner and can be multiple administrators of an e-group. Ownership can be transferred. Owners and administrators have the same usage rights of the e-group. When an e-group is deleted, the owner only can recreate a group with the same name 30 days afterwards.

 A recommended workflow for generating the README in general development (i.e. following the git-hooks setup etc.) is as follows:

  • Edit the Markdown README file "README.md".
Changed:
<
<
  • Compile the Markdown README file to a HTML file suitable for inclusion in a DIV of a CERN Gitweb summary page and compile the Markdown README file to a standalone HTML file (perhaps suitable for CERN SVN repositories) using the script "compile_documentation.py" (noting that the program Pandoc must be available as a dependency of this script).
