- allow trailing slashes in repo names

- make pre-receive hook driver bail on non-zero exit of a pre-receive hook

- allow templates in gitolite.conf (new feature)

The update to 3.6.7 contains:

- allow repo-specific hooks to be organised into subdirectories, and allow
the multi-hook driver to be placed in some other location of your choice

- allow simple test code to be embedded within the gitolite.conf file see

the server)
