|[jgit-dev] Cloning empty repo over network protocol different than over file://|
Hi,I've found following. Cloning from a server running jGit (using http:, ssh: or git:) produces different results than cloning over file: (using git client) or when cloning from a server not running jGit (such as github).
The subtle difference is: 1) The message: jGit produces: "remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout" Where standard git (file: or server) produces a message saying: "You appear to have cloned an empty repository." 2) Content of the cloned repo: Running: diff -ur gbt1 gbt2 produces: diff -ur gbt1/.git/config gbt2/.git/config --- gbt1/.git/config 2014-05-19 13:11:05.897758997 +0200 +++ gbt2/.git/config 2014-05-19 13:24:53.069744300 +0200 @@ -4,5 +4,8 @@ bare = false logallrefupdates = true [remote "origin"] - url = ssh://admin@localhost:29418/gbt1.git + url = file:///tmp/gitblit/data/git/gbt1.git/ fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/* +[branch "master"] + remote = origin + merge = refs/heads/master Only in gbt1/.git: packed-refs Packed refs (only in the repo cloned from jgit) contains: # pack-refs with: peeled fully-peeledI'm of the feeling that 1.x versions did not have this difference (this test was done gitblit using on jGit 3.3.1), but did not try so I'm not 100% sure.
Not sure if this is a bug so did not file it as one. Thanks Hrebejk
