Getting started with write access
Create an ssh public/private key pair
Submit the public key to a current admin for adding to the gitolite repository
Once you have read access
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:tools
# This will create an admin directory in your home directory # And checkout relevant modules there cd tools && ./checkout.sh
Now you have all the necessary repositories cloned in ~/admin and can edit as appropriate.
If you wish to create a new branch (and this is recommended for most work) you will need to push it specifically the first time.
git push origin new_branch
