Currently it is not possible to access git repositories via git:// urls. This would be a handy feature to have if it is not too hard.

Redmine needs to run cat, diff, blame.
So, this feature is too hard.

And what about smart git Protocol ? Or SSH?


The suggested way is not that beauty

may be redmine can find an integrated way to make this possible

Or if this is to much work, an ssh based access would be ok too, or may be even better

"git://" is for clone, pull and push.
Subversion supports "svn cat svn://somewhere/file.txt", "svn list http//example.com/".
But git does not supports.
