An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.


This update for gitolite fixes the following issues:

Gitolite was updated to 3.6.9:

- CVE-2018-16976: prevent racy access to repos in process of migration to
gitolite (boo#1108272)
- 'info' learns new '-p' option to show only physical repos (as opposed to
wild repos)

The update to 3.6.8 contains:

- fix bug when deleting *all* hooks for a repo
- allow trailing slashes in repo names
- make pre-receive hook driver bail on non-zero exit of a pre-receive hook
- allow templates in gitolite.conf (new feature)
- various optimiations

The update to 3.6.7 contains:

- allow repo-specific hooks to be organised into subdirectories, and allow
the multi-hook driver to be placed in some other location of your choice
- allow simple test code to be embedded within the gitolite.conf file; see
contrib/utils/testconf for how. (This goes on the client side, not on
the server)
- allow syslog "facility" to be changed, from the default of 'local0'
- allow syslog "facility" to be changed, from the default of replaced with
a space separated list of members

The update to 3.6.6 contains:

- simple but important fix for a future perl deprecation (perl will be
removing "." from @INC in 5.24)
- 'perms' now requires a '-c' to activate batch mode (should not affect
interactive use but check your scripts perhaps?)
- gitolite setup now accepts a '-m' option to supply a custom message
(useful when it is used by a script)
