So I'm upgrading our ancient, unmaintained "who knows how this even worked"
1.7.20 to 2.5.2. It's going well, but I have a couple of questions.
1) We have our own git server, running gitolite. I have read the docs but I
found them a bit lightweight on the subject:
a) There's a crontab running every minute, doing a git fetch -q. Is this
considered "normal" for a RB / git install?
b) In the repository settings, the Path is set to the local clone path, and
the Mirror Path is set to gitoli...@git.server.name:reponame. Do we have to
have a local clone? (I think the answer here is yes, from the docs, but
just want to check...)
c) We have an SSH key configured in the RB settings. I don't see the point
of the SSH key, if a crontab is already updating the local git clone...
I ask because the server is occasionally slow to respond, but top and the
logs show nothing interesting going on (that I've noticed). I'm wondering
if doing a git fetch every minute is somehow making it hang, although I
don't see git in top at that time either, so I'm kind of clutching at
straws. I'm happy for any advice on how things *should* be configured, this
is a good time to change the config.
2) I see that the config file contains a random secret that I assume was
generated by rb-site install. I'd like to know if changing that will break
anything. The reason behind it is that I want to Puppetize the server
install, and I'd rather generate the config file with rb-site install, than
store it in S3 and copy it into place. Any tips on this would be really
The mobile CSS looks just great, by the way. :)
Please let me know if I haven't been clear above, happy to provide more
information as necessary.
