After some thoughs, we cannot provide direct and complete rsync access
with our current security model which is: no local access (and not
custom hooks). Even CVS replication is made in such a way that CVSROOT
is not overwritten.

I'd rather work on setting git up so it can suit your needs as well as
those of other users :)

I need to implement a Savane interface to backup&reset any repository
on project admin's demand - if you can help work on this, that'd be
welcome =)

Tailor sounds really cool. I need to investigate it to advice users
with repository migrations :)

Ok, as far as I understand you can simply push your local repository
to Savannah. I did:

~/tests/git/git-latest$ git push \
  address@hidden:/srv/git/sources/administration/main.git \

updating 'refs/heads/remote_branch' using 'refs/heads/master'
  from 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000
  to   b86bec6c4ff7909246e68a4495dcaaeede3907e9

refs/heads/test: 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 -> 

Some variants of that command overwrite the remote_branch and reupload
everything, I'll play a bit more with this.

.git/remotes/yourshortcut can prevent from typing a super-long push

I need to implement some hooks to pack the repository from time to
time, maybe. That'd depend on disk usage patterns.
