"Bad" naming. It interprets the branch name as something-gHEX like the output from git-describe. Coincidently "cc48" is an umambiguous short sha-1. check_tracking_name, which prefix "origin/" in, never has a chance to run. We should probably check in get_describe_name() that the returned value is a commit or a tag, but that doesn't really solve the problem. I think check_tracking_name should have higher priority than get_describe_name().. -- Duy -- 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
