git repositories for Cygwin packaging
Hosting is provided for a central collection of repositories used by package mantainers to keep their cygwin packaging under version control.
After you have provided an SSH key, package maintainers can push to these git repositories, like so:
git push email@example.com:/git/cygwin-packages/packagename
where packagename is a package name you are listed as a maintainer for in http://cygwin.com/cygwin-pkg-maint.
These repositories are lazily created on the first push.
Since it's intended that these repositories will only contain cygport scripts, patches, and other packaging files, and to prevent the accidental committing of upstream archives, pushes containing large binary files are rejected.
For testing and experimentation purposes:
A repository for the package name
playgroundexists, that all maintainers can create, push, force-push, rewind and delete branches in.
All package repositories allow the maintainer(s) to create, push, rewind and
delete a branch named
These repositories are viewable via gitweb, and are cloneable via anonymous git or http with the URLs shown there.
