That's weird. We shouldn't be fetching an index at all unless dumb http is in use. When I try to clone from the URL above, I also get shunted to dumb-http (and the repo on the server appears to be poorly packed).

But if I go to:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git

then smart HTTP works fine. I wonder if there is a problem in the cgit setup on kernel.org (or if it was even intended that you could fetch from the cgit URL at all; the cgit page shows the clone URLs in /pub/scm/git).

for my Linux-kernel build-script I am searching for a reliable check of getting the latest version.
This could be 'v3.x.y-stable' or 'v3.x.y-rcX'.

'git tag' seems to be fast, but not reliable.
'git log --oneline' is slow, but does the job.

For getting v3.x.y-stable this seems to work...

$ git tag | grep ^'v3.[0-9]*' | grep -v '-rc' | sort --version-sort
v3.0
v3.1
v3.2
v3.3
v3.4
v3.5
v3.6
v3.7
v3.8
v3.9
v3.10

...but not when listing v3.x.y-rcX, too:

$ git tag | grep ^'v3.[0-9]*' | sort --version-sort | grep ^'v3.10'
v3.10
v3.10-rc1
v3.10-rc2
v3.10-rc3
v3.10-rc4
v3.10-rc5
v3.10-rc6
v3.10-rc7

I know that v3.10 > v3.10-rcX, but not 'git tag' or 'sort --version-sort' :-). This seems from my poor sed/awk/grep skills to be the most reliable method...

$ time git log --oneline v3.0-rc1.. | grep 'Linux 3.' | awk '{ print
$3 }' | grep ^'3.[0-9]*' | head -1
3.10

real 0m10.024s
user 0m5.611s
sys 0m4.857s

...but is slow (even I take v3.0-rc1 as the 1st version-tag of Linux-v3.x series).

Any improvements?

When does git shows message "nothing added to commit but untracked files present " ?

+2 votes

Suppose I create a new local branch and name it "mybranch" and made some changes in some files. I commit the changes, checked out to master branch, merged "mybranch" with master branch and pushed the changes to master.

I checked out back to "mybranch", now is there anyway to get the list of files in which I made the changes?

In git version 1.8.2.3 (in arch) I'm getting this message when doing git commit -a

fatal: empty ident name (for ) not allowed

I get this message in a brand new repository. I'm getting the same message in Ubuntu 12.10 which has 1.8.1.2

The message suggests I do

Run

 git config --global user.email "you@example.com"
 git config --global user.name "Your Name"    to set your account's default identity.

but I've done this

[tim@newton git_scratchpad]$ git config -l
core.repositoryformatversion=0
core.filemode=true
core.bare=false
core.logallrefupdates=true

git works as I expect on another machine with 1.7.9. I'm at my wits end and I don't know what to do.

I wanted to avoid push if any of the files is deleted from the local git clone area. Can anyone please help me with that?

I am using Stash for repository management.
