I use satis to generate my private list of packages for composer. Unfortunately, satis refuses to accept ssh:// syntax. The only syntax it accepts is ssh:// (so, adding the full path to the repo).

With such syntax satis generates packages.json with such URLs: ssh://

But when I try (from my client machine) to clone it - it does not work (Repository not found).

I can only clone useing the short (ssh:// syntax.

So my question is: is there any configuration I can change either on server (ubuntu 12.04 with gitolite) or client (Windows7 + composer) to make cloneing of ssh:// possible?

I've created an issue in satis project, but before they fix that it might take a while. I need to make full path syntax URL working as a temporary solution.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

It seems you give wrong path for it, actually.

Try using ssh://, may be.

Also, I don't think you have to specify port at all, it's kinda redundant unless you have ssh listening somewhere else.

UPD.: In case everything is really so bad with the soft you use, you can create symlink to rootfs in user's directory, say ln -s / rootfs, then git clone ssh://…bla…bla…

So, the full path is /home/git/repositories/MyRepoName.git, right? – poige Apr 15 '13 at 13:44
