Re: [jgit-dev] Difference of behavior between native git and jgit

Hi Axel,

The result should be the same*. There is a special set of tests in
JGit [1] guarding that. So the best way to investigate this issue
would be adding a test for your case and pushing it to Gerrit [2]. I
would expect it to fail on the first run.

* unless there's a bug in native git and JGit is doing what you would expect ;)
