Serving Victoria

During her sixty-three-year reign, Queen Victoria collected round herself a loved ones devoted to her provider. For a few, royal employment was once the defining event in their lives; for others it got here as an unwelcome accountability or as a prelude to larger issues. Serving Victoria follows the lives of six contributors of her loved ones, from the governess to the royal young ones, from her maid of  honor to her chaplain and her own physician.

Drawing on their letters and diaries—many hitherto unpublished—Serving Victoria deals a distinct perception into the Victorian courtroom, with all its frustrations and absurdities, in addition to the Queen herself, sitting squarely at its heart. visible throughout the eyes of her loved ones as she traveled between Windsor, Osborne, and Balmoral, and to the French and Belgian courts, Victoria emerges as extra susceptible, extra emotional, extra egocentric, extra comical, than the austere determine depicted in her recognized photos. We see a lady who used to be vulnerable to suits of giggles, who wept simply and sometimes, who wolfed her foodstuff and shrank from disagreement yet insisted on controlling the lives of these round her.

Sample text

Here's how you might implement the above restriction for a user: RW+ master = bob = bob [ 49 ] Getting Started with Access Control Gitolite checks rules in sequence when attempting to determine whether a branch is allowed to be pushed or not. When Bob pushes a branch called next (that is, refs/ heads/next) to this repository, the first rule does not match at all, since refs/ heads/master is not a pattern that matches the string refs/heads/next. Gitolite then checks the next rule. Since this rule does not specify a refex, all refs will match, and since the permission field is RW+, the push is allowed.

Gitolite then decides whether this user is allowed to access this repository or not. [ 27 ] Your Users and Gitolite Duplicate public keys If the user's public key was already part of the authorized keys file before setting up Gitolite (perhaps to allow him to get a login shell and run Unix commands), the key will appear twice in the authorized keys file—once as is, and once with the command option and other options that Gitolite adds to each public key in the keydir directory. However, if a key appears twice in the authorized keys file, the ssh server will only look at the first occurrence.

18 ] Chapter 2 Setting up Gitolite Now that the code is in the right place, we need to set it up. Setting it up involves adding an ssh public key for the main administrator of the Gitolite installation. In this book, we will assume the administrator's name is Adam, thus his Gitolite username will be adam, but as you follow along, please substitute your own name wherever you see references to Adam or adam. Ssh is a powerful and complex tool. To make things simpler in this chapter, we will describe a set of steps that would surely work, along with suitable assumptions and constraints.
