Thanks for the notes - seem sound to me.
There are some administrative details to sort out, which I post here for comment.
o The details above are for a test repository whilst input is gathered on how it is best structured.
o I propose the repositories would be better under the cave-registry.org.uk domain that BCA owns, rather than british-caving.org.uk
o Currently setting up new repositories requires shell access, so for the time being that's just me. A bit of work and some simple scripts should broaden that out.
o Creating new users is available to the domain webmaster using the cPanel. That is me and Les at the moment but I'm happy to have other webmasters once moved to the cave-registry domain.
o Access permissions to the repositories is done by a configuration file. Currently that again is just me, but I could easily set it up so that the repository owner could update that file via ftp.
o Do you envisage one big repository with separate projects in different directories or a separate repository per project or some other scheme?
