Description (last modified by rjollos)

When loading the Git plugin (for the trac .11 release) I get:

Trac detected an internal error:
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'rev' referenced before assignment

If I go into the source of the TracGit module, and execute, I get a similar error:

draal:~/gitplugin/0.11/tracext/git$ python /data/git/[scrubbed]/.git
git version [{'v_tuple': (1, 5, 2, 5), 'v_min_tuple': (1, 5, 2), 'v_compatible': True, 'v_min_str': '1.5.2', 'v_str': ''}]

    db, tag_db = self.rev_cache[2:4]
  File "", line 269, in get_rev_cache
    oldest = rev
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'rev' referenced before assignment

This was from the latest zip file that was pulled down Feb 26, 2008

Looking into the code a bit, I realized that the problem comes from PyGIT's processing of an empty repository (immediately after 'git init' and before any commits). Once I discovered this, I added a file to the repository and the problem went away.

Looks like this might be a duplicate of #2013, which has a user contributed patch on it as well.
