Game of Trees Daemon

A Git repository server for OpenBSD and other systems

Game of Trees (Got) is a version control system which prioritizes ease of use and simplicity over flexibility. Got uses Git repositories to store versioned data. Got is being developed on OpenBSD and its main target audience are OpenBSD developers. The -portable version of Got provides support for FreeBSD, NetBSD, DragonflyBSD, Linux, and MacOS.

A recent addition to Got's tool suite is a daemon called gotd(8), which serves Git repositories over SSH connections. This talks provides a short general introduction to Got and then presents the design of gotd(8), its usage, and details about its implementation.
