The Neon Git repositories are at http://packaging.neon.kde.org.uk
All KDE contributors can commit to neon* branches or repositories under neon/ directory, it will reject commits to other branches.
They are clones of the repositories used by Debian pkg-kde team http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-kde/. Any commits made to a Debian pkg-kde repository will be pulled into Neon Git immediately.
Add this to
[url "git://packaging.neon.kde.org/"] insteadOf = neon: [url "[email protected]:"] pushInsteadOf = neon:
and clone with:
git clone neon:plasma/khotkeys
If you don't have a KDE account you can still clone the repo at
git clone git://packaging.neon.kde.org/plasma/khotkeys
neon:gitolite-admin has gitolite setup, hooks and hook server for those with admin rights (kde sysadmin does).
neon-hooks/pre-receive is a hook to check the branch can be committed to
debian-hooks/debian-to-neon-post-receive is a hook for debian pkg-kde git repos to call the neon server on updates
server/neon-fetch-request-server.py is an XML-RPC server run on the neon server which is called by the debian hook and fetches updates
sync-repos-from-debian.py checks for all the repositories on in debian pkg-kde and adds any missing to neon. This gets run nightly on Jonathan's server embra.
It uses gitolite3 on weegie.edinburghlinux.co.uk, a server used by Neon and Kubuntu and administrated by Jonathan Riddell and KDE sysadmin.
Web interface is cgit.
Settings up new repositories
To set up a new repository it is nice to make it first on the Debian server so the syncing is already set up and Debian/Kubuntu packagers know to use it.
- Ask someone with access (Jonathan etc) to
ssh git.debian.org; cd /git/pkg-kde/place-to-put-it; ../setup-git-repository <new-repo>
- Then wait 15 minutes while the website for git.debian.org syncs the new repo
- Then run
./sync-repos-from-debian.py(just tell Jonathan to run it on his embra server)
- Make a Neon/unstable branch on the neon git repo and get a Jenkins admin to run
