Since you already have gitosis running then you could also
try cloning through the server.


git clone g...@servername:My_Project.git


If it says something along the lines of "permission denied" or
something then it's likely that your $HOME/.ssh directory
(and thus your ssh key) is different on your main box vs.
on the server.  You can create a new key (just like you did
for gitosis originally) and add it to your gitosis.conf
if that is indeed the case.

That'll help you avoid any permission/umask/etc. issues since
it'll ensure that the 'git' user is the only one allowed to
touch the repos.
