I've created a Django website to manage my company's various iOS and
Android apps. It uses a python Git module
to manage files, but fairly often I will get an error that a command
(usually pull, but sometimes add) returned exit status -6. Running the same
command myself works perfectly. Searching for explanations yields no help.
Here's the traceback my logs get:
Traceback (most recent call last):
> File "gitmanager.py", line 87, in pull
> File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/git/cmd.py", line 227, in
> return lambda *args, **kwargs: self._call_process(name, *args,
> File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/git/cmd.py", line 456, in
> return self.execute(call, **_kwargs)
> File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/git/cmd.py", line 377, in execute
> raise GitCommandError(command, status, stderr_value)
> GitCommandError: 'git pull' returned exit status -6:
The only explanation I can come up with is that it's a timing issue, that
the script is running commands faster than Git expects and I'm hitting an
If anyone else has encountered this error or knows what the -6 means,
please help. If it is what I think, I'd appreciate help designing a way to
slow my script down to avoid this problem.
