   ^^^^ anonymous read-only git:// protocol access

You are trying to push to the anonymous read-only git:// protocol
path.  To push you need to use the authenticated ssh access.


[[Note that with ssh the internal path "/srv/git" needs to be in the
URL where as the git protocol has that wired in already and so doesn't
have it.  That is a normal difference between the two right-hand-side
parts of the path.]]

You can convert your repository from git:// to ssh:// easily.
Instructions are documented here:

Scroll down to the "Fixing checkout from git:// to ssh://" section.
This happens often enough that converting from one to the other is a
well worn path. :-)

    If by mistake a developer has checked out a repository using the
    public anonymous read-only git:// url this can be changed to the
    authenticated ssh:// url using git remote set-url:

      git remote set-url origin ssh://address@hidden/srv/git/project.git

That should fix you up and then you should be able to push.

In that example they show "address@hidden:name/example.git" so we
can tell they are using the ssh protocol.  Which eliminates the
read-only git:// thing from the possibilities.

Actually I am not sure how large of a commit is possible.  I hope not
to find out!  :-) Because we will run out of disk space first as the
file system space is starting to become strained.
