Small plugin for local Subversion, Git, Mercurial, Bazaar and remote Github repository creation.

This plugin extends repository addition form by adding "Create new repository" button to the right of the repository URL field. When a user enters path to a new local repository (file:///... for SVN, just path for Git/Mercurial/Bazaar or just name for Github) and clicks on the button the plugin creates the repository and automatically registers it in Redmine. For Github the plugin is able to create the remote repository and mirror it locally. The plugin can also be configured to create a repository automatically on a project registration.

Similar can be done with reposman.rb but unlike reposman.rb this plugin does not require user to have a shell access to the server. However unlike reposman.rb this plugin supports only local repositories (see here).

Github SCM support, provided by the plugin, can be used to add existing Github repositories. For Github the plugin is also able to register the Redmine service hook.

Also compatible with Redmine 3.2 if you add gem dependency (rails-observers):

Run this before install:
echo "gem 'rails-observers'" > /usr/share/redmine/plugins/redmine_scm/Gemfile

Compatible w/ redmine 3.3.

Very good plugin, much more flexible than @reposman.rb@. In my opinion, such a plugin should be included in the mainstream of Redmine.
