This patch documents some of the scripts that I've published for managing the personal and vendor spaces on the server.  It also covers some of the other features that those scripts enable, so that it's all in one place.  This is a complete rewrite of the material I had written previously since before we did not have these scripts to make use of.

I've not filled in the documentation for gcc-descr and gcc-undescr, Jakub has agreed to provide that at a later date.


I've pushed this. I think it's better to have this in than nothing at all. We can iterate on it as required.

I've pushed the attached fix for a couple of typos.

Do we want to repeat the "do not push changes to that space without
their express permission" for user branches? There are no access
checks to prevent it, but I hsouldn't be changing things in your
branches without your permission.

Finally, why does this qualify it as "If you have multiple clones"?

<p>If you have multiple clones of the gcc repository you can fetch
updates from your personal space by running
  <code>git fetch me</code>

Isn't that the right command even if you only have one clone?
