Create or edit repository
If you want to create a new repository, you have to enter
- name: should be short and unique
- description: this will be displayed on the main page of the repository
- access: default is public read access, while write access can be specified in the permissions. You can also chose public read and write access, but then anyone can modify or delete files in your repository (this is useful e.g. for sandboxes). For private repositories, both read and write access is regulated by the permissions.
- source address: here, you can specify the URL of an existing git or subversion repository. Then your new repository will become a mirror of that repository. If you want a completely fresh repository, leave this field empty.
If you want to edit an existing repository, you can change the first three items. Beware that the repository's permissions are reset if you change its access mode.
