Description baojun.xu 2013-05-08 18:18:19 EDT
I am having an error with git clone on jenkins: http://pastebin.com/NLhEBFek

According to information from github there is a bug using git version older than 1.7.9, which causes this error. The git version on openshift is 1.7.1

That error comes from a bug in older versions of Git triggered by having refs of the following form in your repository:

5e88ff0f57282231ff3de9c81891b509957104ff refs/for/refs/heads/master

Git versions 1.7.9 and later will get you past this error. Your upgrade to Ubuntu seems to have cleared things up.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I need to know when is the update of git on openshift to 1.7.9 or newer scheduled.

Any updates on this?

I'm sorry for the delay.  We are still looking into this.

We are currently using the git from RHEL6, and would like to continue to do so.  I am looking for the git bug, so we can open a bugzilla against the RHEL6 git.  Give them a chance to either update of fix the bug in our version.

We also have a couple of our git experts (which I am not) looking into a workaround incase this takes much longer.

I am no longer waiting for RHEL.  We plan on putting git 1.8.2 onto the online machines.  1.8.2 is the version in Fedora and EPEL.
Due to the changes in API's and configuration files between 1.7.1 and 1.8.2 we are proceeding cautiously and testing at each step.

git updated to 1.8.21 on devenv_3383
