git-daemon-sysvinit – fast, scalable, distributed revision control system (git-daemon service)

Git is popular version control system designed to handle very large projects with speed and efficiency; it is used for many high profile open source projects, most notably the Linux kernel.

Git falls in the category of distributed source code management tools. Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server.

git-daemon, as provided by the git package, is a simple server for git repositories, ideally suited for read-only updates, i.e. pulling from git repositories through the network. This package provides a sysvinit service for running git-daemon permanently. Unlike git-daemon-run, this package provides the usual sysvinit service management commands (“service git-daemon start/stop”) for git-daemon.
