  • If a recursive symlink is present in one's git repo the new git/git-client plugins will fail badly as shown below. While having such a symlink may not be ideal, until git 1.3.0/ git-client 1.0.4 Jenkins did not have problems with it (nor have I had any other git client or tool fail because of this symlink). This appears to be specifically related to changes in the new git 1.3.0 plugin or its dependency git-client 1.0.4. Downgrading to the git 1.2.0 plugin and manually downgrading to the git-client 1.0.3 plugin was enough to remove this issue entirely. The problems seems specific to jgit. Note that I'm using Jenkins 1.505 and all other plugins are up-to-date. The details below contrast the working and broken builds (the only difference is the versions of the git plugins and their effects). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- A normal build (when using git 1.2.0 and git-client 1.0.3): ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Retriggered by user myself for Gerrit: http://gerritserver/710 Building on master in workspace /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/puppet/workspace Checkout:workspace / /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/puppet/workspace - hudson.remoting.LocalChannel@1307e9af Using strategy: Gerrit Trigger Last Built Revision: Revision b3f2bd79784969bd18866ff666f0ab46136ff196 (mybranch) Using shallow clone Wiping out workspace first.
