we have recently upgraded our Ubuntu server to 12.04, which comes with a newer
version of GIT. However, we have noticed that git archive -remote does not work
anymore by specifying the SHA sum of a commit.
By seaching the mailing list I have found out that this was already discussed
before (http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/191815). In our
company we use the git archive -remote command for a similar purpose in our
build system and we must currently stick with an older version of GIT until
there is a solution for this.
I have read that this restriction was made for some kind of security reason,
and one possibility would be to add a config option on the server repo to turn
off this safety check. As we manage the git repos ourselves, this would be
perfectly ok for us.
What is the current status of this - is there already such a config option?
