:I rebuilt the git repos of pkgsrc and src today since they had accumulated
:errors; they are back in operation now. Note that I'm not sure how "well"
:the git tree is (we know the src tree has systematic errors, the pkgsrc
:tree might as well).
I resynced the git pkgsrc repo and ran a comparison against the cvs
pkgsrc repo (using cvs checkout -kb so the keywords wouldn't get in
the way too much). Most of the differences are due to keywords
(cvs has a habit of leaking keyword expansions into commits)
but I did notice that a number of deletions in cvs didn't make it to
(pkgsrc/ is the git checkout)
Only in pkgsrc/devel/sdcc: files
Only in pkgsrc/graphics: xanim
Only in pkgsrc/mail: cyrus

The git repo is definitely working again, sans those synchronization
issues. I did notice the git repo is a bit bloated on the number
of packs and could probably use a git gc / prune / repack.
Another possibility regarding the synchronization problems is that
the git repo is being accessed with a http:// path. The issues might
go away if you run an actual git server so a git:// path can be used
to pull the repo. Actually, this is more a probability than a
Running a git server read-only is fairly easy. What we do for the
DragonFly project is create a dummy account 'git' with read only
access to the repo and then run the git daemon from that using a
crontab @reboot entry like this:
crater# crontab -u git -l
@reboot /usr/pkg/bin/git daemon --detach --verbose --export-all
That and having the firewall let through the git port (tcp 9418) and
then it just works.
