Git+push notification with Gitolite and Jenkins

Its so easy now to support jenkins+git with gitolite. No more having git polling per project and slamming the git server with ssh requests.

To install:
Edit .gitolite/hooks/common/post-receive file[1]

curl -s http:///git/notifyCommit?url=/${GL_REPO}.git

For me, my git prefix is: “ssh://[email protected]

Its that simple.

[1] .gitolite/hooks/common/post-receive should be symlinked in every repo you have. I think you needed to set it up before you created a repo though)
