I have created a bare repository on a rackspace server. The repositories 
are stored under /home/git/. When I attempt a PUSH (my first) I get the 
following error message

sridhar@sridhar-Aspire-5745:~/SASTRA-Sridhar/TNCA$ git push origin master
g...@git.sastratechnologies.net's password:

*My bare repository structure on the rackspace server has the following 
permissions (the bare repository was copied onto the server using scp and 
while logged in as root)
drwxrwxr-x   2 root root 4096 2012-06-18 10:48 branches

drwxrwxr-x   4 root root 4096 2012-06-18 10:48 refs

I am not sure which directory GIT is complaining about. I am also unsure if 
changing the ownership from root to 'git' user will solve it. Would 
appreciate any help that would resolve this.

Best regards,
