Thanks for the response. I believe I did do this on several
occasions...no conflicting files ever occurred. That's why I was so
surprised that I couldn't push my commits (i.e. they were simply
rejected). Unfortunately, I think this is some problem with either
eGit, git, or the combination here...and if I'm getting this problem
I would guess others will as well, unfortunately.
But I will try the workflow you describe again...and hope that I
just did something out of order.

I have been lurking here but I do know
the answer to this one. You should do a fetch/merge from the
remote repo AFTER you do your local commits and before pushing.
If you get any conflicting files during this process, you must
resolve the conflicts and commit the corrected files to your
local repo before trying to push to the remote repo. Follow this
workflow always until you have built up enough experience to
know when you can safely vary it. You will save yourself a lot
of trouble this way.

I've been using the eGit client (0.10.0) over the last
couple of days with the new ECF git repo, and have some
questions (for Markus and/or others). I've been having the
difficulties as described below, and I wanted to check with
others to see if perhaps I'm doing something in the expected
Here's what I've been doing
1) Clone git repo at git.eclipse.org
2) Making change locally
3) commit those changes to my local repo (master branch)
4) pushing the changes to git.eclipse.org
ECF repo (master to master)
When I do the above with a freshly cloned repo...everything
works fine. But if another committer (e.g. Markus) makes
changes locally and then pushes his changes to git.eclipse.org, I get a rejection
message when I go to push (4). Now if I insert a Fetch...
in between either 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 I would expect 4 to
then work, but it doesn't...I just get a rejection message
on the push and no details of what is causing the rejection
(it's not authentication or anything like that...the message
just says 'rejected' with a red X, with no further details
When this happened to me yesterday I thought it might have
been that I was on a VPN (as well as my normal
network)...when I did the Fetch...but that turns out not to
be it...because it happened again this morning (not on a
VPN)...i.e. after Markus had committed and pushed some more
Anyone have an idea of what might be going on here? Should
I be doing something else/some other sequence to get others'
updates and be able to push my own updates?
