I was able to install the vanilla gitolite package and configured it according to this guide. It seemed a little outdated but it was what I used, and I had to make a few changes to make it work.

1. The gitdaemon required a shell, otherwise I could not do the initial clone.
2. I also had to give the gitdaemon user a password otherwise sshd would log the account as locked.

Anyway, the guide states that /etc/conf.d/git-daemon needs to be configured and git-daemon started. But in may case I was able to clone from a remote machine without it running. Now I feel I might have a vulnerable setup. Could someone explain how this could be?

From what you are saying, it may be the case you are sharing your repository using a ssh server (have a look at this post. As you might be using ssh, you are secure, but not using the git-daemon (as it may be the case because you have not started the git-daemon).

Let me know!

Cheers!
