Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
*Git* cannot be used with HTTP or HTTPS and SSO *Git* provides the `http.delegation` configuration variable, which corresponds to the cURL `--delegation` parameter, for use when delegation of Kerberos tickets is required. However, *Git* included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 contains irrelevant checks of the version of the *libcurl* library while required fixes are provided by a different version of *libcurl* on RHEL 6 systems. As a consqeuence, using *Git* with Single Sign-On on HTTP or HTTPS connections fails. To work around this problem, use the *Git* version provided by the _rh-git29_ Software Collection from Red Hat Software Collections.

Description Petr Stodulka 2017-03-09 12:26:55 UTC
Description of problem:
The last build git-1.7.1-8.el6 contains irrelevant checks of version of libcurl library. These were relevant for upstream versions, however the required fixes are provided in different version of libcurl on RHEL 6 systems. According to this problem, the new http.delegation option (provided in the last build of git) doesn't work and prints warning message when it is used instead of any other functionality.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. git config --global http.delegation policy
2. git clone http://<your-repository>

Actual results:
warning about old libcurl that doesn't support delegation option

Expected results:
set delegation parameter for libcurl correctly.
