Redhat EL 6.0

Simple installation:

yum install git


As an example we'll use the awesome group, administrative user (set up by HPC staff) admin and a regular user student.


The admin user on a remote machine linux64 can do the following

  • Check out the admin repository
git clone
  • Add more users e.g. 'student' with a public key
cd gitosis-admin
cp ~/ keydir/
git add keydir/*
git commit -m "added user student"
git push
  • Create a new repository denovo for de novo assembly scripts and set access to users admin and student
cd gitosis-admin
vim gitosis.conf


[group awesome]
writable = denovo
members = admin student
  • Commit and push
git add *
git commit -m "Set up a new repository denovo for use by admin and student"
git push
  • Create a local working tree for the denovo project:
mkdir denovo
cd denovo
git init
git remote add origin
  • Add and edit some files
  • Commit and push to the Git server
git add *
git commit -m "Initial import"
git push origin master
