Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-2591) Git based maven2 builds can't properly release or checkout on branch
Date Thu, 02 Dec 2010 14:55:04 GMT


Brett Porter commented on CONTINUUM-2591:

yep, I understand. I actually think the technique is quite acceptable (we have special cases
for other SCMs around too), perhaps best if a concurrent patch is submitted to SCM so that
it can be cleaned up as soon as the next release of that happens.

As for patching trunk & branch - that's certainly helpful in getting it applied to both,
with the priority being for trunk since it always has to land there anyway. In this case,
because of the scope of the change (upgrading libraries / crude fix), I think it's better
not to apply it to 1.3.x and instead focus on pushing for a non-beta 1.4 release soon :)

> It is not possible to add or release a maven2 project using the git scm when the project
is on a branch. There appears to be multiple reasons for this:
> * The maven-scm version bundled with continuum is old and doesn't include git providers
with sufficiently complete git support.
> * Git SCM URLs don't include sufficient information to identify the branch.
> * Continuum-release's UpdateWorkingCopyPhase doesn't properly update the working (it
always uses master rather than the current branch)
