I've created a GIT repository for cduce and few experiments of mine at . I'm using gitweb, that is a neat piece of sw. Easy to install and to manage. I had a minor problem related to the fact I'm using http as transport protocol to clone our git repos. In particular, the error was:

$git clone
Cannot get remote repository information.
Perhaps git-update-server-info needs to be run there?

The easy fix was to do what I was told to do and to run git-update-server-info in the remote repo.

From the manpage:

A dumb server that does not do on-the-fly pack generations must have some auxiliary information files in $GIT_DIR/info and $GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY/info directories to help clients discover what references and packs the server has. This command generates such auxiliary files.
