Some update

videolan took this opertunity to switch the repositories from EOL gitosis 
to gitolite. This added some hickups
first being some nonworkingness with multiple admins in gitolite. Which
i belive was due to single keys being used with multiple users, i fixed
that for a 2nd key i added so it seems thats the issue

and a 2nd issue that causes branches & heads to disappear from public view
when one pushed to them i suspect thats a permission / user/group issue
but i cannot verify or fix this. 
ATM thresh is sleeping and i suspect these issues will be fixed once he
