#2343: gitpoller fails when user ssh for the repository
Reporter:  kclair   |      Owner:

Priority:  major    |  Milestone:  undecided
 Version:  0.8.6p1  |   Keywords:  git
 I have defined the following ChangeSource (i've replaced the real user and
 host name with example data):

         workdir='gitpoller-workdir', branch='master',

 which is producing this error:

 2012-08-09 20:23:18-0400 [-] gitpoller: repo poll failed

 2012-08-09 20:23:18-0400 [-] Unhandled Error
         Traceback (most recent call last):

 stderr: "fatal: ambiguous argument 'master..origin/master': unknown

 I have confirmed that I am able to clone the repo using the same location
 as the same user that runs buildbot, and the cloning process doesn't
 require any keyboard intervention.

 This looks very much like this bug from an older version:

 But it appears that GitPoller has been rewritten since then, and the patch
 is no longer applicable.
