git push .git/description file

Is it possible to push the changes in the .git directory to a remote repository?

I wish to have a common project description and not have to re-enter it for all the clones of my repository.

It’s strange that the project description is something that is not common to each clone.

  • Permissions for Gitolite with GitWeb does not work
  • gitolite repository getting created but projects.list is empty
  • The project disappear from gitweb after a git push
  • How do I have to configure gitweb and gitolite so they'll work together?
  • Display renamed files in GitWeb
  • Manage http access to git repositories using gitosis
  • Can not clone git repo to server
  • How can I get the source code of a file from GitWeb?
  • One Solution collect form web for “git push .git/description file”

    You could store a description (or .description, if you don’t want it to be visible) in the root of your repo, and then symlink .git/description to that in each repo, like so:

    repo/
      .description
      .git/
        description -> ../.description
    

    You’d have to set up the symlink manually in each of your repos, but you’d only have to do that once (when the repo is created).

    Or you could use a post-receive hook to copy your tracked description file into .git/description. You’d have to set up that hook on each remote repo, too, but again, that would only need to happen once (when the repo is created).
