Right. But that is not anything receive-pack is doing; it is up to his webserver config, which is why I asked to see it. > > 2.

Perhaps you are thinking of the jk/maint-http-half-auth-push topic from last August/September. It explicitly tests the setup from the manpage. The relevant commits are 4c71009 (t: test http access to "half-auth" repositories, 2012-08-27) which demonstrates the problem, and b81401c (http: prompt for credentials on failed POST, 2012-08-27). However, even before the fix, it never got a 403 on the GET of info/refs. It got a 401 on the later POST, but didn't prompt for credentials. -Peff -- 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
