This is a usual use case: a repo has been created on a development machine, before the repo created using gitolite on the server.
For example, gitolite created a repo called "foo":
Assume you have an existing project you want to add in your new repository.
cd foo git init git add --all git commit -m "Initial commit"
Link your local repository with your remote repository then push the local content to your remote repository.
git remote add origin git-bluelight:foo
git push --set-upstream origin master
