Default Question about using fedorahosted as a git mirror

There's a legitimate use of git hosting providers as mirrors, where
they don't act as the canonical upstream of a project, but they act as
backup git mirrors. This is useful if you want to allow an alternate
place to pull from (for higher availability) or for enabling transifex
support where you don't want to give out ssh access to the primary git
host:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N_FAQ#How_do_I_add_a_module_to_Transifex.3F_.28 .23add-transifex.29

It'd be great if fedorahosted could be used for this.

Is this an acceptable use for fedorahosted?

If permitted, would such projects need to be hidden from the front page?

Rich.

You can easily use fedorapeople for this:

Thanks - I didn't know and/or had forgotten about it. I'll use this
instead.

We tried this and in fact it didn't work. Transifex does not seem
to be able to commit to a git repo on fedorapeople.org.

The bug report is here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=630321#c6

Can anyone tell us what we're doing wrong?

Rich.

Perhaps I'm confused here, is this a canonical repo or a mirror? I'd
think you would want transifex operating on the official upstream repo?
Also the transifex user is named 'transif'

This is a mirror. We're using what is known as "option 3", or "the
module is hosted elsewhere but you don't want to give out ssh access":

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N_FAQ#How_do_I_add_a_module_to_Transifex.3F_.28 .23add-transifex.29

I will pull the commits from the mirror to the upstream repo.

> Also the transifex user is named 'transif'

AFAIK I have set the ACLs up so that the 'transif' user should
have access, see:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=630321#c0

But Piotr reports that this doesn't work.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines. Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
