Description

Generally when we cloned a “normal” git repository, the entire folder is under git control and the git information are keep in .git folder within it.

Can SCM be modify such that it create the folder as like a normal git repository?

ProjA
-→ .git
-→ directoryA
-→ directoryB
-→ files

This allows the same folder to be serve from gitweb and use as the actual repository and not just a bare information header.

I believe you just need to disable options: --bare in scm.yml... Can you confirm?

#2 Updated by James Ang about 8 years ago

Hi,

Yes, without that option it can create the structure but the repository tab cannot find the .git now to fetch the log. It will have a 404 error.

#3 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk about 8 years ago

Hm... Then I’m not sure what can I do. I’m not a Git expert... Do you know what options should be used (if yes you can just add them)? Or maybe some another command should be executed?

#4 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk about 8 years ago

  • Target version deleted (0.3.0)

#5 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk about 8 years ago

New version will support on-creation scripts (see #1870)... Will this resolve the issue for you?

#6 Updated by Andriy Lesyuk about 8 years ago

  • Status changed from Incomplete to Open

Possible workaround:

I think a workaround is to check if the option --bare is passed/configured and modify the string back to Redmine such it it appends a /.git/ if no option is specified in scm.yml.

#7 Updated by Lloyd Philbrook over 7 years ago

This should work as long as they never plan to push to the repository. That is the only real difference between bare vs nonbare repos.

404 error goes away as soon as you push some files there.

#10 Updated by Andrey Ku about 5 years ago

I can confirm that it is impossible to create NOT bare git repository.

1. When I’m adding repository to redmine i have to point dir that contain git folders (hooks,info,logs and other files like HEAD and so on)

2. If I init bare git repository it creates such folders in current directory by default

From git init man:

--bare
Create a bare repository. If GIT_DIR environment is not set, it is set to the current working directory.

3. If I init NOT bare git repository it creates such folders in ".git” subdirectory:

DESCRIPTION
This command creates an empty Git repository - basically a .git directory with subdirectories for objects, refs/heads, refs/tags, and template files. An initial HEAD file that references the HEAD of the master branch is also created.

Therefore, “SCM Creator” should have different behavior if it creates bare repo or not. It should give different paths to Redmine and Git in case of not bare repo.
