Everything is working fine with my public keys and repository activity but when one of my team members tries to clone a repository, the clone is blank, example output:

bry4n@~/tests$ git clone

At first, It was giving the typical no read access error. Then i stripped out alot of the junk out of the configuration then he started only getting the output above.

You might want to check out gitolite: - one of the main advantages I found it to have, was a cleaner and more transparent design compared to gitosis. It also provides a migration process from gitosis. – al. Oct 28 '10 at 11:51

Your best bet is to increase the gitosis log level. In your gitosis.conf use:

loglevel = DEBUG

Now you should get a lot more information about what's going on.

thats one of the first things i did to the configuration when he told me he could not clone. – user23949 Oct 25 '09 at 12:17
