Why use the Git plugin

The Git plugin is useful if you would like to track changes to your bcfg2 repository using a Git backend. Currently, It enables you to get revision information out of your repository for reporting purposes. Once the plugin is enabled, every time a client checks in, it will include the current repository revision in the reports/statistics.

Future plans are to commit changes to the repo which are made by the server (adding clients, ssh keys, etc).

How to enable the Git plugin

The Git plugin uses Dulwich to interface with git repositories. Therefore, you will need to install Dulwich on the Bcfg2 server first. Once installed, simply add Git to your plugins line in /etc/bcfg2.conf:

plugins = Base,Bundler,Cfg,...,Git
