I would also not be susprised if at leat some of the repos (those maintained by "the leutenants") were hosted using the same infrastructure which was hosting (and still does) the kernel tarballs, the mailing list and its archives, the wiki etc. And yes, hosting Git is simple for anyone with reasonably decent "sysadmin" skill set. I mean "plain" hosting - which does not provide any fancy web UI to the repos. It might also be of interest that it was possible (almost since the beginning) so have "asymmetric" Git hosting: using its plain "native" protocol for R/O access and host it via SSH for R/W access. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
