Dear diary, on Tue, Sep 06, 2005 at 11:01:25PM CEST, I got a letter
where "H. Peter Anvin" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> told me that...

I just found a bug in cogito-0.13, at least to the best of my understanding of the situation.

Simplified, the problem looks like this: two sides, A and B, pull from repository C. The head of this pull we call 0.

Now commit 1 is added to A. B pulls commit 1 from A, not though C. Later, A pushes commit 1 to C.

Next time B tries to pull from C, cg-update will not advance refs/heads/origin, even though C now has a new head. Thus, B will think that C is in a different state than it actually is.

So, C surely has its head updated? Does cg-update "fail" silently, or
does it utter anything?

C has its head updated, yes. cg-update says "Branches already fully merged."
