So I created a bundle using
git bundle create bundlename.bundle --all and when cloning from it I get loads of
warning: unrecognized header ....
Looking at the bundle file it’s obvious that data from the repository file contents has leaked into the bundle. Workaround? None.
Git flips me a bird again. As usual.
Mercurial has been more reliable, friendlier and actually helpful. I still can’t understand what the hype is around Git.
The affected repository was cloned from
git://sourceware.org/git/binutils-gdb.git and I am using
git version 126.96.36.199. The data leaked from the file contents is either from
ld/testsuite/ChangeLog-2012 or from
ld/testsuite/ChangeLog, more likely the latter. All of those lines look like the output from a GNU make and start with a dash/minus.
PS: yes I have seen this, but it doesn’t help me at all. The version of Git affected is the one that comes with Ubuntu 12.04.
