New Fedora git repositories

A little bit frustrated with Fedora's new git repositories this morning (for packages). Ding-Yi Chen has a really nice write-up on how to get started with it. Got me a few of the essentials that I had missed earlier. I like the new certificate that can be used with Koji. That's pretty slick. Ding-Yi Chen also points to a few of the official git-related pages you may need to visit; I'll recap them here but he's got a point-by-point getting-things-running on his blog that was really helpful (thanks!)

Unfortunately, there still seems to be some issues:

Cloning into bare repository /cvs-scratch/fedora/opensc/fedpkg.git...
open log failed: Permission denied
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Could not clone: Command '['git', 'clone', '--bare', 'ssh://me@pkgs.fedoraproject.org/opensc', '/cvs-scratch/fedora/opensc/fedpkg.git']' returned non-zero exit status 128

I'm not sure what this means. But the old CVS repository doesn't seem to be usable either, which kinda stinks. I'm sure it's just a minor buglet or two and will get worked out eventually. Very very happy that we're no longer using CVS for this... I'd prefer SVN myself, but git is ok too.
