Git SCM fails to build with parameterized builds with empty string

      Create a freestyle build project with the following settings:

      • This build is parameterized
        • Name = BRANCH_SPECIFIER
        • Default Value = <leave blank>
      • Source Code Management
        • Git
          • Branch Specifier (blank for default): = $BRANCH_SPECIFIER

      Then trigger a build with BRANCH_SPECIFIER set to default, the empty string. The build will fail with output similar to this:

      GitAPI created
      Pruning obsolete local branches
      [workspace] $ git remote prune ssh://git@git.socrata.com/core
      Fetching changes from the remote Git repository
      Fetching upstream changes from ssh://git@git.socrata.com/core
      [workspace] $ git fetch -t ssh://git@git.socrata.com/core +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
      [workspace] $ git submodule init
      [workspace] $ git submodule sync
      [workspace] $ git config --get remote.origin.url
      [workspace] $ git ls-tree HEAD
      [workspace] $ git tag -l 
      [workspace] $ git rev-parse origin/
      ERROR: Nothing to do

      An easy workaround is to set the parameter default to "" or "*".
