Releasing using workflow plugin in Jenkins

I recently started toying with the workflow plugin to script a build release. When I try to run the script, the release fails because the release plugin complains of untracked files. I have the same set of plugins running and working fine in a traditional job set up. My set up: Jenkins Version:1.596 Workflow Plugins […]

Integrate TFS git source control and JIRA

I use git repositories in TFS to store source code, but I’d like to track issues using JIRA. Ideally I’d like to be able to reference a JIRA task number in a commit and have that commit appear in jira as an assocation. I’ve found a couple of plugins that work with TFS source control […]

Git 'pack-objects died of signal 13' when pushing to origin

Whenever I work on a branch other than master and try to push to that branch I get this error: User-MacBook-Pro:htdocs user$ git push origin quotes Counting objects: 2494, done. Delta compression using up to 4 threads. Compressing objects: 100% (2246/2246), done. Write failed: Broken pipe9/2455) fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly error: pack-objects […]

git merge only one parent not a real merge commit

Important Info: Edit: After third try (I watched MERGE_MODE file in .git directory and it did not disappear) it suddenly worked. I’d really like to know why this process can fail but I think nobody could tell me… I have merged multiple branche into one branch. First merges worked very well but the third did […]

Multiple GitHub Sessions Open With R Studio

Every time I open R Studio, GitHub will also open–only it will open 3 sessions/windows. Within R Studio, when I change project options for a project tied to Git Version Control, the same thing happens. I can have 9 instances of the GitHub application open on my computer screen at the same time. Inevitably, some […]

Ignored files are still visible in Commit Changes window – IntelliJ 13

I went to: File > Settings… > Version Control > Ignored Files and I added some files using the + symbol > Apply > OK I pressed right click on the project folder: Git > Commit Directory… and the ignored files are still there (Commit Changes window). I also tried to restart IntelliJ, but there […]

Switching branches in Git with external dependencies

Has anyone had to deal with the issues of switching git branches in a project that has Maven (or any other external) dependencies? For example, suppose that in one branch I have a maven dependency, and in another I don’t (or have a different version required). Would I have to re-import maven dependencies each time […]

Git Clone under Cygwin hangs

This is something of a mystery. I just installed Cygwin on my Windows machine (Windows 8). The very first thing I tried was git clone (I was cloning a private repository using ssh, rather than anything on github). It announced cloning into blah-blah-blah, and then just froze. I waited several minutes, and nothing. I looked […]

Validate version number on commit in git

We currently store our version number in a file in git. Due to our crazy process, when in stabilisation phase – i.e. code freeze – every commit to the remote repository needs to update the version number in the file. Our remote repository is hosted on Stash. How can we enforce that every commit has […]

Proper way to release in Git with submodules

Im starting to work with git submodules and Im a bit confused. Basically on my project I needed a modified version of hybridauth library. So I forked hybridauth, did my changes and added it as a submodule of my repo. Now when I try to do a release of my repo or simple download a […]
