About gitsftp

The gitsftp program (through the git-remote-sftp and git-init-sftp symbolic links) is a helper for the Git DVCS, which allows it to easily access repositories through SFTP. To accomplish this, it uses the FUSE/SSHFS filesystem to mount the repository during actions which require remote access. It therefore only works on systems for which FUSE/SSHFS is available (which includes Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X). Future versions may allow use of other similar frameworks, such as puffs (NetBSD).

WARNING: this software has received only limited testing. For example, it is unknown what will happen when more than one user tries to access the same repository at the same time.
