Hello guix,

I have set up a few packages of mine at 
https://divoplade.fr/divoplade-site.git

If you clone it, it works:

git clone https://divoplade.fr/divoplade-site.git

But if I add this URL as a guix channel, I get:

guix pull: error: Git error: invalid content-type: 'text/plain'

This is the first time I get this error, as far as I remember. How do I
get this to work?

Best regards

divoplade

It looks like it's trying to fetch the website itself when it gets added
to a channel. Strange, since cloning the URL works.

I know this error! I had it happen to me way back when libgit tries to
work with a remote that exposes the older http-based git protocol. AFAIK
(but this was some time ago) libgit does not support this.

See [0] for a explanation on which protocols are supported. Perhaps you
can try to use of the other protocols to see if that helps you? YMMV, of
course :-).

It is weird that guix using libgit cannot do what git does. Maybe git
does not use libgit?

Thank you for that pointer.

There does not seem to be a good solution outside of what I have. The
"newer" version (with a more modern CGI-based technology stack!) is
much more complex to set up.

Perhaps the smartest thing for me to do would be to install the cgit
guix service 
https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Version-Control-Services.html.

Best regards,

divoplade
