I'm confused -- is Redmine's git just for looks/downloads?

Added by Alt None 7 months ago

A little new to redmine here and just trying to understand how Git works in Redmine. I've created a repository, can see it from the Repository tab and all. However, I can't find any help with cloning this github repo to another system. I keep running into "check out this plugin", etc.

What's the purpose of Git on Redmine if I can't clone it or anything to other computers? Can someone point me in the right direction here? I was hoping Redmine would allow me to use it more like a git server -- being able to push changes, pull changes, etc. to multiple systems.

Git in redmine is not a Server. It is a normal client that you can configure to pull the repository regularly.

What you can do with git is for example:
  • link e.g. from issues or wiki pages to changesets
  • connect a commit to a ticket/issue
  • react on keywords in a commit (write time, Close ticket, ...)
