my understanding is that github is just a service and a frontend. I do
use github, but I'm trying to set up my own git server.
I'm moreso wondering what's involved with creating a multi-user git
server. Do I have to create a user on the remote box for each user using
the git server? Or does git handle this in some other way?
I tried looking for a piece of "github" software, but I didn't find much.
Again, I'm not asking anyone to write me a book, but if anyone knows of
a guide that would help in this endeavour, I'm all ears. I've tried
using gitosis, but I'm not sure what it's doing or how it works. If
there's a "vanilla" way to go about this, I'd rather use that (so I can
try to understand what's going on).
