is it possible to do a gated check-in using Team Foundation Service backed by GIT?

Using VS2012, Team Foundation Service with GIT as my source control provider – I am attempting to create a build definition that uses the “Gated Check-In” option – however – this option is not enabled on the Trigger tab of the build definition creator.

HTML5 Boilerplate, git prime/hub deployment and ant build for performance – what's the workflow?

I’ve been working on a new responsive design and have been using git in a prime/hub setup (see A web-focused Git workflow). I’m getting to the point in my project where I want to start using the optimizations in html5bp’s ant build script. But I’m unclear on the workflow when one is using git. Do […]

Using TeamCity with GitHub for Windows

I am using TeamCity 7.1, running it on my Windows development machine. I have a team using GitHub for Windows. I am working on a demo for continuous integration. I want to teach the others how to setup TeamCity to work with a GitHub account. The less configuration they have to do the better. TeamCity […]

Git and incremental commit dates/number/something

I am trying to set up a build server using NAnt tasks. I have a few Git repos that I want to build, but I am having a problem with versioning of the results. How do version a library (dll) so that each build will use a number for each version? I know that Git […]

Automated Phing Deployment – Git Asking For Password

Right now I have a Phing script that takes the files from a branch of our Git Repository, updates a server, and does a few other changes on it. The problem is Git asks me for the password everytime — so every night (for our nightly build), I have to do this manually, and we […]

How could I get my SVN-only host to pull from a git repository?

Pros and cons of using git revisions instead of branches as references for rollouts

I am working on a phing script with git for build automation, and am still new to it. To give a little idea, we plan to have multiple branches in our project, and any of them could be rolled out (we are almost certain about this part). During the course of development of my thought […]

Programmatically triggered Bamboo plans

I am currently attempting to automate a release process using bamboo. In a release there are 5 projects, each of which is an optional candidate. So a release may just be 1/5 projects, so I wouldn’t want to release all 5 projects every time. I am able, using bamboo variables to select which of the […]

How do I count the number of git commits affecting a given subtree?

My version number looks like 0.1.3 and has two components: 0.1 (the tag) 3 (commits after tag) All this information easy to obtain from git describe –tags. For version 0.1.3 git describe may look like 0.1-3-g53d4dec All of this works fine, but I’m looking for the number of commits affecting only a given subtree, not […]

The problem is that last release branch have different names in time (*release-**). What are the ways to solve this problem? Is it […]
