Subject [jira] (SCM-584) Checkout branch with Git uses unfamiliar command sequence which leads to errors during checkout
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 15:31:02 GMT


Ancoron Luciferis commented on SCM-584:

Patch availability for about 1,5 years and still not integrated... wow!

But furthermore it is really strange why this issue appeared in the first place. The initial
developer(s) of the git provider must have been blind. How else can you explain that someone
wanted to do a 'git pull' for switching to a branch?! As every documentation says 'git pull'
is just a shortcut for 'git fetch' + 'git merge'.

>From the man page:
[...] git pull runs git fetch with the given parameters and calls git merge to merge the retrieved
branch heads into the current branch. [...]

Even if it worked for the developer in the first place then only by luck.

> I want to checkout a specific branch from my git repo using the maven-scm-plugin. The
plugin first clones the repo and gets the default branch as selected in gitorious. After that
the plugin executes git pull ... mybranch which works fine as long as there are no merge conflicts
between current branch and branch to checkout. In the case of any conflict an error occurs.
> The git checkout -b command should be used instead.
