When I try to run gitosis-init as specified in the Arch Wiki, I get the following:

sh-4.2$ gitosis-init < /srv/
Traceback (most recent call last):

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/soaplib-1.0.0_beta8-py2.7.egg-info/top_level.txt'

If run the gitosis-init command as root its fine. But not if I try to run it as the git user, either via sudo or directly as the git user.

See the repository owner's blog here: and github README here:
If, for example, you have a number of repositories in dir/ which are all writable by the same group, it allows you to write
[group mygroup]
members = jdoe
writable = dir/*

instead of specifying each repository individually.

Hello canton7,

What are wildcards are used for?

canton7 commented on 2011-02-07 23:54

I've created a package of a fork which supports wildcards for the 'writable' attribute here:

Ah, it appears reinstalling python2-distribute fixes this issue.

I'm still having a problem...

alperkanat commented on 2011-01-13 17:25

corrected the pkgbuild, thanks for warning!

notizblock commented on 2011-01-11 13:28

i used python2-distribute instead of python2-setuptools

alperkanat commented on 2010-12-21 20:46

You need to change setuptools to python2-setuptools in the dependencies.
