When trying to clone a git repository using Mercurial over hg-git: hg clone git://github.com/rails/rails.git destination directory: rails importing Hg objects into Git abort: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond It fails, but why? […]
Mercurial has a command to list every file that the repository has for every revision: hg manifest –all Is there an equivalent command in Git? I know about git ls-files, but it only list files from the index (the current revision).
What are reasons to not use a git-svn bridge or an hgsubversion bridge? What are some blatant problems with using a bridge as opposed to fully switching to Git or Mercurial? I assume the bridge will still be plagued by the slow SVN speeds right? Thank you.
In my build system, every time I run a new build I save revision and hash information of the current commit in a few variables, and use them in my sources without issues. For example the window title is formatted like “NAME-REVISION-HASH”. The only problem of this is that sometimes people build the project by […]
There are plenty of questions about cloning a git repo into a container by installing git and then cloning stuff. What I’m interested in doing is something more like this, where they use a GitHub URL in the ADD command. Obviously that’s just a public URL, though. Is it possible to use something like git […]
What is the git equivalent of ‘hg summary’? Especially ‘hg summary –remote’ ?? I’ve seen translations for ‘hg in’, ‘hg out’, and a bunch of other translated commands, but I never see ‘summary’. I’m lazy and want to know everything ‘hg summary –remote’ would tell me in one simple command. Will I have to write […]
I was migrating my hotfix branch from Mercurial to Git. I used the hg-git plugin to import my hotfix branch into a new branch on my forked repo of my git project. Is there a way to add the newly created branch to the upstream repo? The branch does not currently exist on the upstream […]
I can’t figure out a nice, succinct title for this question, so bear with me! My overall goal is to have a variable in my source code which give the date, time, (and possibly commit id) of a class so that when exceptions get caught, I could output the error along with that said variable […]
I need the equivalent of git post-receive hook in Mercurial so I can notify another service that a push has been done to the repository. What I need in my hook is simple: changeset revision of the last changeset. Of course I understand that the difference with git is that the ref won’t be named, […]
I need to keep track of different software installation, ease the upgrade of the files. I’m planning to use a SCM to keep track of the modification and be able to roll-back rapidly if needed, or to ease the migration to a new machine. Initially I tried to use Mercurial (hg) but I discovered that […]
