I have an Ubuntu 11.10 box running git server using gitosis, installed as described here

I just tried upgrading to 12.04 doing a do-release-upgrade, and the gitosis package was removed and is no longer available in apt-get. This is the first time this happens to me, so I'm not sure how to proceed.

Luckily, the box is virtualized, and I reverted to the backup, so no harm was done. But still, I want to upgrade and keep gitosis installed. What's the recommended way to proceed?

gitosis is no longer actively maintained. You should migrate to gitolite. There's a pretty detailed migration guide available.

On this page you can the packages for your system. Select your system and download the .deb file which can be installed via the software centre.

What does it mean the "Status: Deleted" in launchpad? – pgb Apr 27 '12 at 13:14
