[Savannah-hackers-public] mercurial ssh access issues

I have been trying the limited Mercurial pull/push access using the hg- ssh script and it works fine. The authorized_keys file must look like this:

command="cd /srv/hg/project && hg-ssh . *" ssh-rsa .....

With "." we solve a single repo and with "*" we also solve multiple subrepos.

So, what's the problem? The problem is that now only mercurial commands are allowed. With the options available, the hg-ssh script seems the cleanest way to solve the ssh access, so I think it would be great to use it.

How? I've been thinking on creating a general ssh script, let's say sv_ssh_access. So in the authorized_keys we would have:

command="sv_ssh_access" ssh-rsa ....

The script would need to check for the command passed via ssh (SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND) and do whatever (e.g. call hg-ssh). It would also be useful to display "Out of service" messages or anything else we could imagine.

I have tried it with a simple python script that calls hg-ssh:


#!/usr/bin/env python

import os

os.system("hg-ssh . *")


Now, the script could be just (which also works fine):



It's just an idea.
