You just wrote "a password is not needed anymore"? Why make one configureable?

And what exactly does not work?

Well, seems ok so far - but there's this discussion about storing plain-text
passwords (like svn had a few times in the past) ...


Do I understand you correctly: Because /etc/ is the configuration path, the
password (that gets asked on checkout) is not stored in the files; but for
commit you use client certificates, so you don't need it anyway?

I'm a bit confused.
