I followed an online tutorial to setup gitosis on my LAN server and it's using ssh-key to authenticate now. All the tutorials I saw were using ssh-key authentication. I was wondering if I can use password to authenticate a remote clone or push?
The reason I want to do this is because there are many machines in my LAN, and I don't want to setup ssh-key from each machine, so it may be easier to just remember one password.
One problem I can see with password authentication. If the gitosis need to authenticate per file, then this will be a pain to implement.
