I have a git server running with gitweb as my frontend. I noticed that there’s a forward slash in my project name
Hello-World/.git which is annoying me. To clone the project I also have to include the forward slash, which is not ideal. Full disclosure: I don’t know if it’s a git or gitweb issue.
For those that can’t open images. I’d like to change
Hello-World.git. Displaying as
Hello-World on gitweb and cloning with
Hello-World.git similar to github would be even better. I am running my server behind nginx.
Steps to reproduce :
git clone https://github.com/octocat/Hello-World.git
and manually moved the
Hello-World folder to my git repo directory. I was suggested to clone with
--bare option because gitweb assumes all repo are initialized as bare. Is this true? If so cloning Hello-World.git fails to get README.md inside the repo, which is inconvenient.
