Serializing git commits and sending them via REST

I have for example 3 machines with same git repo. And I also have DMZs between pairs of machines, DMZ here being internal network without external access, machine B only has access two both DMZs and as such needs to server as conduit between machine A and machine C. All machines have gitolite installed (for […]

Cannot Push in Eclipse GIT?

It shows 9 committed changes that haven’t been pushed (as there is an up arrow with ‘9’ next to it). However, when I click on “push to upstream”, it indicates the branch is “up to date”. Then, I am confused why the up arrow appears…

How to use git to download a project

I’m new to git and can anyone tell me how to download this project? I don’t know why the author writes ‘replace “kai” with your user name’, but I just followed this instruction and used my user name. However, it prompts me to type in the password while I didn’t set up any password. If […]

git push rejected “%commit-sha% was not committed by %programmer-A%”

I have a repository with two main branches, master & develop. And there are two programmers A & B commits into them.

When I make changes to any files in a repository that I’m working in and add them with git add . or git add –all and then commit, it says nothing to commit, working directory clean. I made a temp directory, then checked out my master directory and merged with the following: git checkout -b […]

Git push access denied from inside /etc

I am trying make my puppet directory (/etc/puppet) a Git repo and push to GitHub from there. Everything works from from my home directory but from inside /etc/puppet, I get a Permission denied (publickey) error, even if I use sudo. It seems like maybe there is a problem reading my public key but my Linux […]

Viewing git patch without context

Since apart from the actual changes, each patch contains a little bit of surrounding lines, I wanted to use that information and present me a side-by-side comparison with nice visual representation edited lines, removed lines and so on – the one we’re used to in meld / IDE. I just hate “pluses-minuses” view. I know […]
