git-daemon support for user-relative paths.
Dropped a fair amount of reundant code in favour of the library code in path.c Added option --strict-paths with documentation, with backwards compatibility for whitelist entries with symlinks. Everything that worked earlier still works insofar as I have remembered testing it. Signed-off-by: Andreas Ericsson <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
