#11863 closed defect (worksforme)

GitPlugin only works with certain linux user groups.

I've been trying to control access to my git repos. I've found that if I create a new group and chown the git repo to root:newgroup, trac loses the connection to the repo and reports that "No changeset None in the repository". This happens regardless of the users added to that group.

I thought initially that it was the apache user that must be present in the group but I found that it will work with certain groups even without any members in those groups. The two groups it seems to work with are "dev" and "apache"… anything else and it loses the change sets.

InstallationIssue. The git repository support requires that user of the web server can read entire of the git repository. If it doesn't work on your environment, please check permissions and SELinux ACL of the repository. If it still doesn't work, please post how to reproduce.
