Description Stephen Shaw 2011-12-02 02:08:17 UTC
If I'm working on a project that that I cloned using an alias. ie.
git clone gnomec:f-spot

I can perform actions that can be done locally like git log, but if I do something like update I get an exception:

NGit.Errors.TransportException: gnomec:f-spot: No such host is known
  at NGit.Transport.JschConfigSessionFactory.GetSession (NGit.Transport.URIish uri, NGit.Transport.CredentialsProvider credentialsProvider, NGit.Util.FS fs, Int32 tms) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at NGit.Transport.SshTransport.GetSession () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at NGit.Transport.TransportGitSsh+SshFetchConnection..ctor (NGit.Transport.TransportGitSsh _enclosing) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

My alias is:
[url "ssh://user@git.gnome.org/git/"]
        insteadof = gnomec:

I think this is supported with MonoDevelop master but I am unsure how to set up the url alias to test. Would you be able to tell me what git commands I need to run to generate the alias so I can trigger this issue?
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2012-02-13 11:17:03 UTC
Ah, I reproed the issue and it is not fixed. I'll look into it now and see if I can figure out why the alias isn't being resolved properly.
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2012-03-06 09:24:22 UTC
The fix has been upstreamed to jgit and committed there so I'm just updating monodevelop to the latest version. The fix should make 2.8.8 final.
