If I define an alias, any alias, git responds with "permission denied" when
I try to use it. If I set the environment variable GIT_TRACE to one, what
I see is that git is trying to execute the alias as if it's a builtin
command. In other words, git is not recognizing the command as an alias
and thus does not translate it. I know that the command I have assigned to
the alias is valid because it executes correctly if it is used on the
For example, if I define:
alias.push-notes = push origin refs/note/*
fails with "permission denied"
git push origin refs/notes/*
I am using git version 1.7.1 under RedHat linux.
Interestingly, the alias is correctly interpreted by git version 1.7.1
running under RedHawk linux.
Has anyone seen this problem or have any insight into its cause?
Thanks in advance!
