Description Zane 2012-03-20 14:42:28 UTC
MonoDevelop Installed
You have created a new remote repository somewhere (i.e. GitHub)

Steps to reproduce:
- Open MonoDevelop
- Create a new solution
- Right click on the new solution and click Version Control -> Publish
- You will be prompted with a dialog.Purposefully enter some of the information in wrong. Either By using SVN instead of git or putting the wrong URL in, in order for the publish operation to fail.
- Observe that a new empty repository is created in your project directory
- Observe that version control features are now present under version control, prohibiting you from attempting to republish.

I'm not sure if this is proper functionality or not. I think publish is just a bunch of different version control actions lumped into one feature. So if one of those actions doesn't get done then that might be intended. The only thing is you can't really use publish again once it's been done once.

Fixed in git master. There is still an issue where sometimes the overlay icons are not removed from the solution pad, though I'm not sure why they are being added in the first place. They must be added asynchronously and we lack the facilities to properly remove a project from version control other than by reloading the entire solution.

This does not appear to be fixed.
I am using 3.03.2 (Mac, Lion) and it is still happening.
I am trying to publish to a git repository on a network machine (actually a Windows PC) and do not know how to complete the 'Connect to Repository' dialog. So the repository isn't found but the solution is now 'published' to a nonexistent repository, and nothing further can be done, except 'remove' from version control , which removes all the source files  as well - surely it should not do this; removing from source control should remove only the linking, not the original files!
If it's any help I have years of experience with Microsoft SourceSafe but none (yet) with git.

Sorry, looking at the dates I see this was only fixed yesterday so I won't have the update yet. I wish someone would 'fix' the discrepancy between US and Euro dates, I thought it was fixed on 7th May, not 5th July!

No problem, i've made that mistake before too.

I did file the issue you mentioned at the end of comment 3 as bug #6014. If the description of the issue is incomplete, could you add additional information to it? This is definitely not something that should happen.
