Trailing space in Git branch name causes build failures


      While setting up a new job, I C&P my Git branch name into the "Branch Specifier" under SCM. I didn't realize it, but there was a trailing space in the branch name. This caused the build to fail with:

      Started by user ryan.shoemaker
      Building in workspace /opt/jenkins/jobs/MyJob/workspace
      Checkout:workspace / /opt/jenkins/jobs/MyJob/workspace - hudson.remoting.LocalChannel@6c616408
      Using strategy: Default
      Wiping out workspace first.
      Cloning the remote Git repository
      Cloning repository origin
      Fetching upstream changes from ssh://ryan.shoemaker@mygitserver.com/git/MyModule
      ERROR: Couldn't find any revision to build. Verify the repository and branch configuration for this job.

      When I removed the trailing space from the branch name, everything built fine.
