Chapter 5. Managing Repositories

One of the advantages of using Gitolite is that you do not need to create new repositories manually, set their permissions, and so on. Gitolite does all this for you, based on the contents of a specific file (conf/gitolite.conf) in the gitolite-admin repository. In this chapter, we will show how you can add new repositories to Gitolite, as well as how to bring in existing repositories in to Gitolite's ambit.
