Description Mark Probst 2013-10-25 17:56:58 UTC
I cloned beaea12, which I got to build properly.  Then I fast-forwarded to 6fb15ea, after which "make world" failed with

    One or more modules needs update
    make: *** [check-versions] Error 1

"make reset-versions" did not change that.
Comment 1 Mark Probst 2013-10-25 18:29:27 UTC
Doing "make reset-mono" results in:

*** git fetch mono
remote: Counting objects: 29, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (2/2), done.
remote: Total 17 (delta 15), reused 17 (delta 15)
Unpacking objects: 100% (17/17), done.

Warning: make reset-mono does not automatically clean up mono. You may have to run 'make clean-mono' separately.

Note that despite what look like an error, it does not fail.
Comment 2 Mark Probst 2013-10-31 17:11:15 UTC
What made "git reset" fail was the fact that its "origin" remote was still "xamarin/mono" rather than "mono/mono".  Correcting that made it work again.

Still, if "git reset" fails, "make reset-mono" should fail, too.

Thank you for taking the time to submit this report. After reviewing the description of this bug, we believe it no longer affects the current version of Xamarin.Android. If you are still experiencing the issue after updating your packages, please reopen this report with an attached reproduction.
