In tinkering with GitBlit, I’m not sure I understand the concept of “projects” within this product.  When I look at the “my dashboard” page, I see a “projects” link.  What I have not found is a way to administer “projects”.  If I log into GitBlit with an administrative user, I can move repositories between folders by editing the repository.  I just don’t understand how “projects” tie into all of this or how to create them as they do appear in the ability to edit the repository URL.

 

Thanks,
Scott

Hi Scott!

Projects currently only exist as a structuring element. In the path to a repository, the first element (folder) is considered a project.  Which is very limited and mostly just for grouping. You can add descriptions for projects, but only by adding a `project.mkd` file on the filesystem. (See Main Repositories "project").
Projects as first-level entities, i.e. with permissions and members and administration, only exist as a concept, the implementation was never completed. (See also  https://github.com/gitblit/gitblit/issues/647)

Hope this explains it a little,
Florian
