Git changes & impact to Overlays hostnames (Apr 25, 2015)
As previously announced
and previously in the discussion of merging Overlays with Gentoo’s primary SCM
The old overlays hostnames (
overlays.gentoo.org) have now been disabled, as well as non-SSH traffic to
git.gentoo.org. This was a deliberate move to seperate anonymous versus
authenticated Git traffic, and ensure that anonymous Git traffic can continued
to be scaled when we go ahead with switching away from CVS. Anonymous and
authenticated Git is now served by seperate systems, and no anonymous Git
traffic is permitted to the authenticated Git server.
If you have anonymous Git checkouts from any of the affected hostnames, you should switch them to using one of these new URLs:
If you have authenticated Git checkouts from the same hosts, you should switch them to this new URL:
In either case, you can trivially update any existing checkout with:
git remote set-url origin git+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/$REPO
(be sure to adjust the path of the repository and the name of the remote as needed).
