Hello,

I'm using eclipse 3.6 and EGit 0.11.3.
On the remote linux git server is git (1.7.0.4) and gitosis installed.
I cloned the gitosis-admin.git repo and added a new project to the gitosis.conf. Then I successfully pushed that to the remote server.
I tried to clone that none existing project with Eclipse but I got a Null pointer Exception. The project folder was created on the remote server (in /srv/gitosis/repositories) but I cannot clone this empty project.
Is this a known bug?

As a workaround I initialized the project directly on the remote server.

Can you clone a new project with the command line Git?

This seems to be a known limitation of egit (and it used to be an limitation of git as well until recently). Workarounds are either your method or simply adding an empty file (or a .gitignore etc) to the repository to make it no longer empty.

Hello,

thanks for the answer. Ok, maybe this limitation/bug will be fixed in the future.

Best regards

Frank
