I appriciate that you clearified you oppinion. Please excuse me if it
sounded as I in any way speaked for gitolite. I use gitolite as an
example becuase the target application in this case is unknown to most
people (think gitolite with db-backend for user permissions).
It's a valid design oppinion to not mix git protocoll with anything
else. But gitolite already does that. Gitolite already have user
interaction mixed with git interaction. Do you say to me that gitolite
is broken and should not do user interaction over git-commands? Then why
does wild repos exists and why does gitolite error messages exists?
We're already down that road, why not do it better?
