Custom Readme, gitignore & Licence File



so i wanted add custom Readme, gitignore & Licence Files to my Docker gitea Installation (v1.7.0).

I created various Folders (custom, readme, gitignore, license) with various files (MyREADME, MyGitignore etc…) in it. I restarted the container. But nothing gets pulled from gitea, my files are not in the dropdowns at repo creation site.

I searched this discussion i searched gogs forum & the internet and tried every single hint i found but i was not successfull.

Has someone done accomplished this? And if so, can someone please share examples what exactly to do.

Thanks in advance.


Does really nobody have a clue how to configure gitea in docker to use its custom folder(s)?
