To re-iterate Dscho's point, the reason for this testcase is that if you do this: $ git checkout master $ git branch next $ git push hg://example.com master $ git push hg://example.com next With the current design, next will not be present on the remote. This is caused by the fact that git looks at "fast-export ^master next", sees that it's empty, and decides not to export anything. This patch series solves that, by having "fast-export ^master next" emit a "from :42\nreset next" (or something like that, assuming :42 is where master is currently at). -- Cheers, Sverre Rabbelier -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
