Central Repository

As Hippo is based on GIT, your Central Repository may be multiple hosts, or if you are running a small site, distribute your repository amongst your servers or a workstation.

Installing/configuring the Central Repository involves the following:

Host User Group

We set up a host ‘group’ for users with read/write access to the Hippo Repository: for our example _hippo.

Members of this group will include all administrators pushing updates to the repositories.

On OpenBSD you will do something such as the below:

# group add _hippo
# usermod -G _hippo samt
# usermod -G _hippo charlie
