Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm running git 184.108.40.206 on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS
I got bitten by what follows. Yes, it's an edge case. Yes I now understand why it does what it does. Yes the right answer is "Don't do that, Jeff." :-) Still, it took me a little time to figure out what I'd done wrong because the failure is silent, so I thought I'd document it. Perhaps there's even some way to issue an error message for cases like this. The attached test script shows the issue in detail, but here's the basic failure: $ ls hello.git $ git clone hello # *Mistake!* Succeeds, but should have cloned "hello.git" or into something else. $ cd hello; touch foo; git add foo; git commit -am"add a new file" $ git status # says I'm a rev ahead of the origin $ git push # nothing pushed $ git status # says everything's okay At this point hello/foo still exists, there's nothing to commit, git diff origin/master reports nothing, yet foo was never pushed to hello.git.
