Only if the remote helper is using marks, and this particular patch is adding a test-case without any use of marks at all. IOW; this test is testing something completely different, which happens to fix the original issue, but this is not the only way to fix, and in IMO certainly not the best. As I showed in my script above: $ git checkout master $ git branch next $ git push hg://example.com master $ git push hg://example.com next This works just fine. Go ahead, apply my patch, and run it, the second branch gets updated. It will fail this test, but that's because the test is not testing what it should: that *when using marks* the second branch exported is ignored. This test does that: --- cat > expected << EOF reset refs/heads/master from ##mark## EOF test_expect_failure 'refs are updated even if no commits need to be exported' ' cp tmp-marks /tmp git fast-export --import-marks=tmp-marks \ --export-marks=tmp-marks master | true && git fast-export --import-marks=tmp-marks \ --export-marks=tmp-marks master > actual && mark=$(grep $(git rev-parse master) tmp-marks | cut -f 1 -d " ") sed -i -e "s/##mark##/$mark/" expected && test_cmp expected actual ' --- -- 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
