    Forking a repository rely only on the filesystem content of the forked repository
    This can cause issue if the source repository has been created under Gitolite2 and the Tuleap instance is now running Gitolite3, Gitolite configuration will not be updated until a new Git repo is created in the project (meaning users will not be able to access the forked repo). In this case, the FORK_REPO system event is in error with this kind of traces (sorry for the french in the logs...):

    Command execution failure: cd /var/lib/tuleap/gitolite/repositories; sg - gitolite -c "cp -f /var/lib/tuleap/gitolite/repositories/project1/test_gitolite.git/hooks/* /var/lib/tuleap/gitolite/repositories/project1/u/user1/test_gitolite.git/hooks/" 2>&1 (return value: 1):
    cp: impossible d'évaluer « /var/lib/tuleap/gitolite/repositories/project1/test_gitolite.git/hooks/gl-pre-git.hub-sample »: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
    cp: impossible d'évaluer « /var/lib/tuleap/gitolite/repositories/project1/test_gitolite.git/hooks/post-receive »: Permission non accordée
    cp: impossible d'évaluer « /var/lib/tuleap/gitolite/repositories/project1/test_gitolite.git/hooks/update »: Permission non accordée


    Also, it appears than in some undefined cases the filesystem permission applied to the forked repo are wrong which leads to this kind of errors client side when the user try to push new content:

    remote: error: insufficient permission for adding an object to repository database ./objects
    remote: fatal: failed to write object
    error: unpack failed: unpack-objects abnormal exit


    The fork process must be made more resilient.
