i just forked it because it's abandoned and fixed an issue with
non-ascii names or here

it should work with ruby 1.9 (using rbenv), on 2.2 it loads but the web
throws an exception.

for self hosting or hosting (small?) teams, i once crafted this

it configures a local user with git-shell and gives public key access to
anyone in the authorized_keys file.  some commands are available through
ssh itself, for instance:

  ssh git@server help
  ssh git@server create-bare-repo fauno/bananajour

and anytime you push a pubkey, the git ~/.ssh gets updated with a git

for read-only access git-daemon and even cgit shouldn't be hard to run
over the same homedir.  sort of a gitosis/gitolite without per-repo
privilege separation :)

ah, sorry, i didn't read the article :P
