Required Git technologies
JGit, the Java library from Eclipse, and C-Git, the fast web interface for Git are both required by Git MultiSite. Specifically, the following version of each:
  • JGit version
  • C-Git version 2.3.1-262.replication

Known issues

  • Clarification concerning the behavior of our replicated post hooks
    Standard Git hooks have their stdout tied to Git, so that the output of the script is forwarded to the client making the push. In the case of Git MultiSite, stdout/stderr cannot be sent to the client making the push for the replicated post-hooks since there is no client connection. Normal Git post-hooks work the same as they do in an unreplicated Git deployment. (NV-4478)
