Purpose: Provide hosting place for open source projects

Description can be used to host open source projects. It provides the following facilities:

1. An scm for maintaining the code. The currently supported scm's include Mercurial, Git, Bazaar, Monotone or SVN. Note: There is no cvs

2. A trac instance, which provides a mini-wiki for hosting information and also provides a ticketing system.

3. A mailing list

How to setup a new hosted project

This page is for administrators only. People wishing to request a hosted project should use the Ticketing System ; see RequestingNewProject (Requires Fedora Account)

1 Create source group in Fedora Account System (<scm>project should be the group name)

2 Create source repo

3 Log into hosted1

4 Create new project space via

$ /usr/local/bin/ <project name> <project admin>

5 Answer most questions with defaults except source control. /srv/<scm>/<project> is where the source is

6 If a mailing list is desired, sudo /usr/lib/mailman/bin/newlist and answer the questions. The initial password you choose will be mailed to the list owner.

How to import data from a cvs repo into git repo

Often users request their git repos to be imported from an existing cvs repo. This is a two step process as follows:

git-cvsimport -v -d -C <dir> <cvs_module>
sudo git clone --bare --no-hardlinks </pathto/cvsimported/repo> /git/<git_dir>.git/


git-cvsimport -v -d -C translation-quick-start-guide translation-quick-start-guide
sudo git clone --bare --no-hardlinks translation-quick-start-guide/ /git/translation-quick-start-guide.git/
