Private repositories generally available

With this post I am happy to announce the general availability of Gitorious with private repositories. This feature is one of our most requested ever, and we’re happy to launch it in response to community funding. You guys kick ass!

I’ve written about private repositories before. We have been running the new code base live on for a few weeks, and after fixing some nasty caching regressions, we’re confident that it’s ready for prime time.

The new version is 2.2.0, upgrade instructions are in the wiki as usual, and private repositories specifically is also documented in the wiki.

Sorry for the long wait, and have fun!

    huh, i’ve been having problems with the upgrade to 2.2.1. Namely ‘rake assets:clear’ seems to be looking in ‘/public/*’ instead of ‘public/*’ (from the root of the server instead of the working working directory. )

      Poking around a bit more, there seem to be problem with either “File.expand_path” or you forget to cd into the root gitorious install directory. Sadly I don’t do much ruby dev, and can’t tell if this is a config error on my part or something that needs be fixed in the code.
