We are having an issue where one of our CruiseControl servers is
making local merge commits. There are no local changes to files under
version control, but we frequently see these merge commits. When
doing a git status we will see:
$ git status
# On branch 2011-2
# Your branch is ahead of 'origin/2011-2' by 50 commits.
and a bunch of untracked files, so nothing that should be causing us
to have local merges and commits.
Any ideas on what the issue is or what i should be looking at?
The working copy was created by doing a git clone and "git checkout -b
2011-2 --track origin/2011-2".
Thanks in advance,
