Git-GUI notes

Notes about git-gui, the git GUI.


Failure traversing parents

If you get the following error when cloning a repository using Git Gui…

error: Could not read afbf…etc
error: Could not read 68a3…etc
fatal: Failed to traverse parents of commit c7ba…etc

…then it may be that the user does not have permission to read one of the repository’s submodules.

If you’ve been logging well, you can see which submodule by checking the repository’s log for the commit mentioned in the “fatal” message.
