I wanted to set up Workbench to use a git daemon shared by other developers who are using the Eclipse plugin. I can clone the repository into Workbench, but it will not push changes back to that repository. It seems to use that clone to set up its own local repository. Is this a limitation […]
Based on the Pro Git book by Scott Chacon on page 9, to install Git on Ubuntu we need to have libraries that Git depends on: curl, zlib, openssl, expat, and libioconv. Thus, I type $ sudo apt-get install curl-devel expat-devel gettext-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel and I got the error message Reading package lists… Done Building […]

Sorry if this is a stupid question with just a yes/no answer, but if I understand correctly, in git a branch is just a pointer to a commit. Doesn’t this imply that once you’ve merged two branches, git doesn’t know which one pointed to which set of commits? Before A—B—C—D—E <- X \ 1—-2—-3—-4 <- […]
I am new to git. I have accidentally removed part of the history for our project on git. Now, I want to set the head to the latest stable release. The issue is the tree to which i want to set the HEAD to is not accessible from it commands, but i can access it […]
While developing a Symfony2 project, I often come across bugs in third party bundles. Most of the time the bugs are subtle but hard to find. For example this week alone I have found three bugs where a value was tested using a simple if ( $value ) construct but required the use of ( […]

We have each developer’s keys in CloudBees, so that ensures that it is one of them, but is there anything stopping one developer from inputting another developer’s name/email in the commit field?

I’m trying to ignore all .o files in the quickfix subdirectory. The file is: quickfix/examples/executor/C++/Application.o I have tried the following: **/quickfix/**o quickfix/*o quickfix/**/*o EDIT: one option is to add a .gitignore file to the quickfix subdirectory with the *.o pattern. Does anyone know why the above patterns don’t work?
