Hi all,

so far I have been using SVN. Now I want to "watch TV in colour", that
is use Git. I already have set up (E)Git and use it locally -- and this
works really nice. However, I'm wondering how to use Git in practice,
that is how to define the size of a single repository and how to set up
a Git repositories on a server with user authentication.

E.g.: GEF3D. GEF3D is a rather small project, however it consists of 20
plugin- and feature-projects. Now, how many Git repositories do you
recommend? 20? 1? 5 -- one for each category (core, examples, doc,
tests, releng)?

The other question is a more technical one, which is not really related
to Eclipse, however I assume the very same problems had to be solved at, too: At the moment, I have a subversion system running on a
company' server. We have written a small tool with which I can easily
create new SVN repositories and accounts for people with fine-granular
access rules. Users do not have to have an account on our machine, nor
do they need SSH keys. User name and password is all it needs. How can I
do that with Git? And -- this is the Eclipse related question -- how did
you solve that problem at Eclipse (for Eclipse projects)? All I found is
gitosis/gitolite, but as far as I understand, these tools require users
to have SSH keys. (Maybe this is one thing of Git I haven't completely
understood...). That is: How do you manage Git repositories at
