+git-daemon as inetd server::
+ To set up `git-daemon` as an inetd service that handles any
+ repository under the whitelisted set of directories, /pub/foo
+ and /pub/bar, place an entry like the following into
+ /etc/inetd all on one line:

+ git stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/bin/git-daemon

+ --syslog --export-all

+
+git-daemon as inetd server for virtual hosts::
+ To set up `git-daemon` as an inetd service that handles
+ repositories for different virtual hosts, `www.example.com`
+ and `www.example.org`, place an entry like the following into
+ `/etc/inetd` all on one line:
++
+------------------------------------------------
+ git stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/bin/git-daemon
+ git-daemon --inetd --verbose
+ --syslog --export-all
+ --interpolated-path=/pub/%H%D
+ /pub/www.example.org/software
+ /pub/www.example.com/software
+ /software
+------------------------------------------------
++
+In this example, the root-level directory `/pub` will contain
+a subdirectory for each virtual host name supported.
+Further, both hosts advertise repositories simply as
+`git://www.example.com/software/repo.git`. For pre-1.4.0
+clients, a symlink from `/software` into the appropriate
+default repository could be made as well.
