Thanks for explaining.
No, that's not what I'm doing. I haven't even seen a remote-hg branch from either Sverre, or Johannes. IIRC the msysgit wiki mentions that there were some patches not quite accepted in upstream that prevented the remote-hg from getting upstream. But I don't know which patches are those, I don't know why they are needed, and I haven't even been able to run this stuff. I was told this might be an issue for all remote helpers, and it seems to be the case (albeit a small issue IMO). > If I understand correctly, it is possible to get Sverre's remote > helper to work without affecting this particular testcase.

All right, so I run this and get this: % git fast-export master..master reset refs/heads/master from 8c7a786b6c8eae8eac91083cdc9a6e337bc133b0 As an user of fast-export, what do I do with that now? -- Felipe Contreras -- 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
