Default Space for public package git repositories

Hi fellow Fedorans.

Recently I wanted to modify a package. Since we now use git for
packages, the following work flow feels natural:

git clone package-repo
make changes in package repo
commit
push repo somewhere
send pull request to package maintainer

Is that the anticipated workflow? Should I use fedorapeople.org webspace
to push the repository to (a newer git version there would be nice
then), or is there some other space that is meant for this kind of
repositories, that I can easily upload the repository to and have it
publicly accessible?

Tim

That works. Or if it wasn't a package you planned to work on often,
git send-email can email the changes in a format suitable for git am
to import.

Why is a new version needed? For simply pushing and pulling changes,
the version provided in EPEL should be fine. It manages to work well
enough on fedorahosted, which gets a decent amount of use.

Incidentally, if you'd like to see an updated git for EL-5, point
anyone you know that uses emacs-git my way. AFAIK, the only hang up
to updating EPEL to git-1.7 is working out how to maintain the emacs
support¹.

Beware also that git 1.7 by default enforce that it is not possible to push to a repository git "not bare", and, from my experience, many EPEL users don't haven't read the advice on this of the git manual - just an example of another possible "incompatibility"*

Yep, but that's a reasonable change and configurable for those that
want the old behavior. It was mentioned on epel-devel a while back,
when we discussed updating¹.
