There are several questions in there. :)

Firstly, is now the repository of truth, meaning the
mirroring happens *from* *to* (and soon
to github).

The script that mirrors from to runs
every 5 minutes.

That's just an artifact of gitweb, which admittedly is not the greatest
web UI for git (there's some talk about setting up an alternate web UI,
such as cgit, since for various reasons we may not be able to take down
gitweb entirely).

The first URL you listed (actually only the p= part is needed, i.e. takes you to the gitweb
(web UI) version for the repo, where you can poke around the repo in
your browser.

The second ( is the
read-only git URL.  It only works if you are using git to access it
directly, e.g.

$ git clone
Cloning into 'bugzilla'...
remote: Counting objects: 87446, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (19615/19615), done.
remote: Total 87446 (delta 64056), reused 87349 (delta 64008)

Resolving deltas: 100% (64056/64056), done.
Checking connectivity... done.

The other URL (gitolite3 at is for
use with git if you have write privileges.

Yeah that part isn't completed yet; we're waiting on I've been told it
should be a week or so away.

Hope that answers your questions.
