Description Pedro Sampaio 2018-09-17 16:09:10 UTC
Gitolite before 3.6.9 does not (in certain configurations involving @all or a regex) properly restrict access to a Git repository that is in the process of being migrated until the full set of migration steps has been completed. This can allow valid users to obtain unintended access.
