+# Server side commands for easier administration
+Management of git repositories isn't naturally part of the git protocol,
+so commands for creating and deleting repositories need to be added
+so that you don't need a shell account on the machine to manage repositories.
+Additionally operations that may be performed
+by making changes to the `gitano-admin.git` repository
+may also be done with the command-line,
+which is significantly quicker and more scriptable than pushing changes.
+<!-- Gitano lets you delegate CLI interface management
+ but does not parse changes to gitano-admin to see what they do
+ and then run ACLs to see whether the user is permitted to do so -->
