Creating a new repository
In the vast majority of cases, your new repository will be hosted
at <>. Here is how to get it created.
1. Send your OpenPGP public key, pasted in the body of an email, to
the [[Tails system administrators|about/contact#tails-sysadmins]].
State that you want to establish a communication channel in order
to eventually get a Git repository created. Do not _attach_ your
public key, this would not work due to bugs in the mailing list
software we use.
2. Wait for the Tails system administrators to confirm they have
received your OpenPGP public key and imported it into the keyring
of their mailing list.
3. Send your Git repository request in an OpenPGP-signed email to the
[[Tails system administrators|about/contact#tails-sysadmins]];
include the following information:
- the name you want to publicly use in our Git repository hosting
system (only lower-case ASCII chars and digits);
- the preferred name of the repository you want to create
(only lower-case ASCII chars and digits);
- your SSH RSA public key;
- whether the repository shall be publicly available or not;
- who else needs read access to the repository, plus their SSH RSA
public key;
- who else needs write access to the repository, plus their SSH RSA
public key.
Once your repository has been created, see:
* [[addresses for Git clone and web access|contribute/git#other-repositories]]
* [[immerda's documentation|contribute/git#immerda]]
