GitPlugin doesn't handle fresh repositories well

Reported by: mail@… Owned by: Herbert Valerio Riedel
Priority: normal Component: GitPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


When using GitPlugin with a repository that hasn't been used yet, it just displays an AssertionError without further details.

Do this to reproduce it:

  • Create a new git-repository using
git init && git add .
  • Point your trac.ini to this repository
  • Point your webbrowser to your trac

What happens?

  • This error message is displayed in the web browser:
    Trac detected an internal error:
  • This lines are displayed in your trac logfile:

        assert all(e is not None for e in self.__rev_cache)

How was this problem resolved?
By doing a

git commit -m "Initial commit"

in the repository

What should happen instead?
The GitPlugin should know how to handle this case and display a message like

Your repository can't be used for now - please do a initial commit first!

What software/version were used?

  • apache-2.2.9
  • mod_python-3.3.1
  • python-2.5.2
  • git-
  • trac-0.11.2
  • gitplugin from Nov. 21th, 2008
