Petr Baudis2009-11-05 04:17:59 +01008<p><strong>repo.or.cz</strong> is a public <a href="http://git.or.cz">Git</a> hosting site.
9You can <a href="@@webadmurl@@/regproj.cgi">create a project</a> here and then publish your development by pushing
10to it, or even enable push access for multiple developers.
11Alternatively, you can just set up a mirror of any project published elsewhere
12and we will provide pull and gitweb access for the project.</p>

Petr Baudis2009-11-05 04:17:59 +010014<p>In the push mode, every developer that wants push access will need to
15<a href="@@webadmurl@@/reguser.cgi">create an account</a> and use SSH for pushing changes;
16using the project administration password, you will be able to add/remove
17permission for developers to push. Also, optional <a href="@@htmlurl@@/mob.html">anonymous push access</a>
18to a dedicated <tt>mob</tt> branch is supported.</p>
19
20<p>In the mirror mode, we will check the remote repository at the URL you
21give us every hour and if we spot any changes, we will grab them, mirror

23by mail, JSON or the CIA service if you set it up. It's a matter of few clicks

Petr Baudis2009-11-05 04:17:59 +010024to set up a mirror - don't be shy and feel free to create mirror for any
25git project without a decent gitweb interface or with badly hosted
26repository; you don't need to be the project maintainer to setup a mirror.</p>

28<h2>Terms and Conditions</h2>
29
30<p>There are only two conditions:</p>
31
32<ul>
33<li>Your project must be free software and distributing it must not violate laws
34of Czech Republic. (The registration process is completely automatic but we will
35remove your project if we find out during manual inspection or on request by
36someone relevant.)</li>
37<li>The repository size should not exceed 400M after repacking (let us know
38if you need an exception). If you need more, you are running quite a big
39project and should be able to arrange own hosting; but we can and likely will
40grant exceptions. Note that e.g. CVS-imported glibc repository with ~15 years
41worth of history is just 100M.</li>
42</ul>
43
44<p>This site provides NO WARRANTY of any legal kind about whatever you store
45here. Someone can crack your account or the site, alter the data, make mayhem
46and whatever else; we cannot be held responsible for any damages that may be
47caused to you in any way in connection with this site.</p>
48
49
50<h2>Backup policy</h2>
51
52<p>Your repository is NOT backed up! Why? Because you have backups yourself,
53and all your users do, too! The distributed nature of Git means that all the
54developers and all the users who ever cloned the repository have the full
55history of it, and shall any disaster happen to repo.or.cz, all can be
56easily restored by a single simple push. That said, we may set up backups
57in the future if the service becomes popular enough.</p>
58
59
60<h2>Operation</h2>

62<p>repo.or.cz runs on a four-way Xeon 2GHz with 4G RAM and 256G disk array
63that also serves as a PoP for the <a href="http://www.xs26.net/">XS26</a>
