Hi again,

It seems that the trac db has not the right permissions / group owner.

I get this for the clfswm project:

$ git push

within 0 seconds. (TracError: The user pbrochard requires read_and_write permissions to the database file /project/clfswm/trac/db/trac.db
and the directory it is located in.)

On the clfswm project directory:

pbrochard at lisp:~$ ls -l /project/clfswm/trac/db/trac.db
-rw-rw-r-- 1 www-data www-data 4542464 Nov  5 23:44 /project/clfswm/trac/db/trac.db

pbrochard at lisp:~$ touch /project/clfswm/trac/db/trac.db
touch: cannot touch `/project/clfswm/trac/db/trac.db': Permission denied

pbrochard at lisp:~$ id
uid=1182(pbrochard) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),32799(cl-wav-synth),32875(clfswm)

Sorry to bother you again,

Best regards,
