GROK-DUMB-PULL — Update git repositories not managed by grokmirror


grok-dumb-pull [options] /path/to/repos


This is a satellite utility that updates repositories not exported via grokmirror manifest. You will need to manually clone these repositories using "git clone --mirror" and then define a cronjob to update them as frequently as you require. Grok-dumb-pull will bluntly execute "git remote update" in each of them.


show program's version number and exit
-h, --help
show this help message and exit
-v, --verbose
Be verbose and tell us what you are doing
-s, --svn
The remotes for these repositories are Subversion
-r REMOTES, --remote-names=REMOTES
Only fetch remotes matching this name (accepts globbing, can be passed multiple times)
-u POSTHOOK, --post-update-hook=POSTHOOK
Run this hook after each repository is updated. Passes full path to the repository as the sole argument.
-l LOGFILE, --logfile=LOGFILE
Put debug logs into this file


The following will update all bare git repositories found in /path/to/repos hourly, and /path/to/special/repo.git daily, fetching only the "github" remote:

# Update all repositories found in /path/to/repos hourly
0 * * * * mirror /usr/bin/grok-dumb-pull /path/to/repos
# Update /path/to/special/repo.git daily, fetching "github" remote
0 0 * * * mirror /usr/bin/grok-dumb-pull -r github /path/to/special/repo.git

Make sure the user "mirror" (or whichever user you specified) is able to write to the repos specified.
