Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456492
Git clone not creating intermediate directories.
Last modified: 2013-01-10 05:25:15 EST
Description of problem:
The version of GIT currently in Rawhide has a rather severe bug -- git-clone
refuses to create intermediate directories during a clone. It did create them
in previous versions, and many scripts (for example, GNOME and Xorg jhbuild)
depended on this behavior. As a result, jhbuild fails with current Rawhide.
This has been fixed upstream with commit 2beebd2, which is present in upstream
release 22.214.171.124. Please consider pushing a package containing that release to
The individual fix commit is:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pullcord:cjb~ % rpm -q git
Steps to Reproduce:
1. git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/util/macros xorg/util/macros
fatal: could not create work tree dir 'xorg/util/macros'.
I just build 126.96.36.199 in rawhide. Thanks for the heads-up, Chris!
