We've just got through migrating all our old TFS projects into git and then
into a Gitorious local installation. All is fine and is working great
except for comments on ordering of Projects and Repos in the web interface.
We have around 100 projects and around 400 repos which, to the average end
user, are in no discernible order making a specific project difficult to
I'm aware projects are ordered by created date and as such I managed to
write a mysql script to change this date to make them appear in
Alphabetical order by name. This works well. However, I'm trying to
achieve the same thing with the repos table but for some reason it doesn't
change the order in web interface.
My question - how are the Repositories ordered?
My second question - why can't we have the ability to configure the order
ourselves? To be created_at/updated_at seems like a very strange default
option which you are potentially working a very large amount of projects.
