Creating Your Own Meta-Repo and Kits

263 bytes added, 1 year ago
For our local development setup, we will be using [ gitolite]. Gitolite will make things quite a bit easier by managing git repositories for us. ''Think of gitolite as your own private GitHub that has no Web user interface'' (we modify its settings by pushing to its special {{c|gitolite-admin}} repo) and you'll have a pretty good idea of what gitolite does. We will be using the following systems in these examples:
* {{c|repohost}} - this system will be running gitolite under the {{c|repos}} user account and will house git repositories for meta-repo and kits so that they are stored at a handy central location.If you are going to be using your dev workstation as your "repohost", you can simply replace all references to {{c|repohost}} with {{c|localhost}} below :)
* {{c|ryzen}} - in these examples, this will be the primary development workstation, which will be used for editing cloned git code as well as generating custom kits. Once generated, the custom meta-repo and kits are pushed up to {{c|repohost}}.
{{Note|When you follow this guide, it is certainly possible to have {{c|repohost}} and {{c|ryzen}} be the same computer. If you set things up this way, simply use {{c|localhost}} instead of {{c|repohost}} in the examples below.}}
{{Important|This document assumes you have basic knowledge of {{c|ssh-keygen}} and how to generate public/private SSH key pairs. If you don't know how to to this, see [[Funtoo Containers#Generating SSH Keys|Generating SSH Keys]] for quick steps or [[OpenSSH Key Management, Part 1]] for a more detailed introduction. For this article, you'll probably want to generate a private keys without a passphrase, which is more convenient but a much greater security risk if the private key gets compromised, or one with a passphrase but using [[keychain]] to manage ssh-agent for you.}}
