At work we have a server which hosts our CVS repository and in order to restrict shell access to this system, I have deployed rssh which has worked well for a number of years.
We are now converting part of our repository to Git and using this existing server to host a centralized bare Git repository. I would like to extend these restrictions to Git commands as well, but
rssh does not support Git. I know that Git has git-shell which does a similar thing for Git (though I haven't used it) but I don't think it understands CVS.
Given that both approaches use the mechanism of setting the user's shell to one of these, I can't use them both at the same time.
We still need to use the CVS repository so is there any mechanism that would work for both CVS and Git?
My options at the moment are:
- Do nothing (not really an option).
- Find a way to make them both work (hence this question).
- Forget security and just give everyone shell access.
- Abandon the idea and put the central Git repository on another server (probably virtual) and use
- Something else which I haven't thought of.
