There shouldn't be much, if anything, Fedora specific about this, so
the git User Manual is probably a good place to start:

(There are a lot of git tutorials on the web, many of which are
with incorrect, outdated, or otherwise useless information. :)

Assuming you have ssh access to a remote host already, it can be as
simple as:

$ gitdir="/path/to/some.git"
$ ssh remotehost "mkdir -p $gitdir; git --git-dir $gitdir init
$ cd /path/to/local/git-repo
$ git push ssh://remotehost/path/to/some.git master

Without knowing just what part of this is giving you trouble, it's
hard to be more helpful. Let us know where you are getting stuck and
I'm sure we can help get you past the problem(s).

Thanks, I will have a go tomorrow as I have not touched GIT for a few
now and need to jem up again. The let you know what problems I was having
if I
cannot get it to work.

IIRC pull over SSH worked but push did not, either that or I could not
get SSH
to work at all with GIT, sorry I cannot remember.

I'm a huge fan of the git community book:

I got the O'Reilly one but it does not even meantion SSH. I was hopeing it
would answer all my questions, but alas.
