Where in the sshd to git-shell exec chain is $USER variable set for the user? Just being curious if this is the simplest but one of the more robust ways to get the user's name. I still think forcing the site administrator create a directory for each and every user only to house a single script that denies the access is a wrong design, but the code seems to correctly implement that design. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
