Subject [jira] Created: (SCM-488) Git provider fails to support 'release:perform' if not releasing from remote HEAD
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2009 12:02:59 GMT
Git provider fails to support 'release:perform' if not releasing from remote HEAD

                 Key: SCM-488
             Project: Maven SCM
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: maven-scm-provider-git
            Reporter: Petter Måhlén

During the 'release:perform' phase using Git provider the following commands are issued:

[INFO] Checking out the project to perform the release ...
[INFO] Executing: /bin/sh -c cd /Users/pettermahlen/git/sas-client/target && git clone
git:// /Users/pettermahlen/git/sas-client/target/checkout
[INFO] Working directory: /Users/pettermahlen/git/sas-client/target
[INFO] Executing: /bin/sh -c cd /Users/pettermahlen/git/sas-client/target/checkout &&
git pull git:// tag root-5.18-uk
[INFO] Working directory: /Users/pettermahlen/git/sas-client/target/checkout

If the branch that is being released has conflicts (that cannot be automatically resolved)
with the current HEAD at the remote server, the 'pull' with fail due to merge conflicts. A
manual execution can look like:

Pull does a fetch and a merge with what is currently checked out. A potential fix would be
to rather than the 'git pull' command issue the following:

git checkout <scm.tag>

That's what I did to get past this situation, and I believe that should work as a general
