<https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Using_Git_for_Samba_Development#Basic_Samba_Git>  suggests that both git://git.samba.org and https://git.samba.org should work equally well. So I tried to clone pam_wrapper over HTTPS, but it didn't work:

$ git clone https://git.samba.org/pam_wrapper.git
Cloning into 'pam_wrapper'...
fatal: repository 'https://git.samba.org/pam_wrapper.git/' not found

Björn, could you please look into this? Thanks!

I'm quoting metze from some weeks ago, who replied to a similar request:

In order to support https:// the repository needs to have a

post-update hook executableand it needs to call git update-server-info

See our main repo where this works.

  root@sn:/data/git/samba.git/hooks# cat post-update
  # An example hook script to prepare a packed repository for use over
  # dumb transports.
  # To enable this hook, make this file executable by "chmod +x

  exec git update-server-info

It's up to the repository owner to enable that.

Björn, there is no need for a hook, see https://git.seveas.net/apache-gitweb-cgit-smart-http.html
