Simply do:

ssh uclibc.org
mkdir -p git && cd git
git clone --bare git://git.buildroot.net/buildroot buildroot.git
touch buildroot.git/git-daemon-export-ok

Back on your local pc you do:

git clone uclibc.org:~/git/buildroot.git

do your local commits, branches and whatever and push them to your
repo on uclibc.org with git push

Other people can also clone your repo using:

git clone git://git.buildroot.net/~correa/git/buildroot.git

And view it online at:
