Shallow clone fetches all tags and ignores refspec

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      I have configured a shallow clone, but in the logs I see

      git -c core.askpass=true fetch --tags --progress ssh://git.example.com/example.git +refs/heads/:refs/remotes/origin/ --depth=1

      1. --tags is contrary to my purpose. Fetching all tags is a lot.

      2. The refspec does not seem to obey what I have configured...this is downloading all refs.

      I am interested in only one ref (hence the shallow clone). I should be able to configure it to do

      git -c core.askpass=true fetch --progress ssh://git.example.com/example.git +refs/heads/my-branch:refs/remotes/origin/my-branch --depth=1

      If there is a way to get this behavior, let me know.

            Git plugin 2.5.1 will include a fix for JENKINS-31393, which honors the refspec provided by the user even on the initial fetch.

            That doesn't resolve the request to not fetch tags, that will need pull request 333.

            Fixed in git plugin that added support for honoring refspec on initial clone.
