redmine.pm for git
I tried getting Redmine.pm to work as an authentication handler for git over webdav, but without much success. Both parts work on their own, i.e. Redmine.pm works great with SVN, and git over webdav works great with a text password file, but I can't get both to work together, I only end up getting roughly 10 Webdav commands to get over on a push, and an apache child that segfaults (11).
Has anyone already had some success with such a setup? How could I debug this?

Not a defect since Redmine.pm is for subversion users.
Redmine - a mod_perl module to authenticate webdav subversion users

I'm aware that it was designed for svn, but but the svn dav is also just plain webdav, which git uses for access to http/s repositories. I even use the Redmine.pm to authenticate access to folders on another vhost (think a sandbox for webapps being managed with redmine). I just think that extending the scope of the module to also work with git shouldn't be much trouble, but I've never been into perl, and I have no idea how to debug this. A pointer to debugging perl apache modules would make me happy, so I can try to patch it myself.

Yes, I had some success with Redmine.pm for git authentication. I tried on ubuntu 9.04 with standard apache, webdav, modperl and a fresh redmine trunk.
