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 ~/.gitconfig

[url "git://packaging.neon.kde.org/"]
    insteadOf = neon:
[url "gitolite3@packaging.neon.kde.org:"]
    pushInsteadOf = neon:

and clone with:

git clone neon:plasma/khotkeys

Anonymous Access

If you don't have a KDE account you can still clone the repo at

git clone git://packaging.neon.kde.org/plasma/khotkeys

Admin

The repository 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 pangea-tooling jenkins_jobs_update_nci.rb
