Git vs Http protocol [message #1357] Sat, 04 April 2009 19:14 Go to next message

I tried to download EGit with "git clone git://repo.or.cz/egit.git" but
firewall problems appear to be blocking the git port (9418?). Apparently,
git can work over HTTP as well (which was one of the selling points over
SVN for authenticated access) but when I tried to do " git clone
http://repo.or.cz/egit.git" I got a 'Cannot get remote repository
information' message. Is that because the 'repo.or.cz' server hasn't been
set up to provide the Git repo over HTTP as well?

No, you were using the wrong URL. I updated the page with the http option.
In general, a project's gitweb page, when available, will show all the
URL's for different protocols.

OK, thanks. In general, other VCS use the same path regardless of protocol
(c.f. CVS's pserver vs ssh). It would be good if, when setting up
git.eclipse.org, we could ensure that we have the same path for both git::
and http:: access. Given that the git.eclipse.org will probably be a
vserver on the back end, and we can probably reserve the full path name
for just git repository access, I hope that it's not going to be a problem.

Yea, I agree.

repo.or.cz is a quirk; its a dedicated hosting site that pretty much
*only* runs git repositories for open source projects, and yet it is
configured to use different paths for git://, ssh:// and http://.

Its possible to use the same path for everything, and any
git.eclipse.org server should certainly do that.
