[Savannah-hackers-public] git features on Savannah

Hi all.

I'm looking into moving away from CVS to git with my Savannah project.

I enabled git on my project page and I see it seems to have created a
repository, but it's only a source repository (as far as I can see).

That's good but I'm very interested in a web pages repository; every
time I update the manual so that chapter names change, etc. the
html_node directory is a nightmare to manage; CVS just isn't good at
renaming or even removing, really, old files.  It would be nice if the
web pages could be kept with something that had better file handling
abilities.  Is this possible?  Note this is an FSF web pages repository,
that automatically updates my project's content on

Also, in CVS I had my CVSROOT/loginfo trigger set up to send email on
checkin to a mailing list; is this possible with git on Savannah?

Are there other tips/hints/etc. other than what's in the Savannah docs
page (which is a good beginner's guide but doesn't have any advanced
capabilities info)?

I seem to recall that Jim Meyering had some special features that could
be enabled on a per-project basis: are those documented anywhere as to
what they're for, why they'd be desired, how to enable them, etc.?
