#2582: GitPoller requires git >= 1.6.5
Reporter:  Quentin  |      Owner:
    Type:  defect   |     Status:  new
Priority:  minor    |  Milestone:  undecided
 Version:  master   |   Keywords:
 GitPoller uses
 git init directory]' instead of 'cd directory && git init'. The former is
 'only' available since git 1.6.5, and caused an error with git

     exceptions.EnvironmentError: command failed with exit code 129: usage:
 git init [-q | --quiet] [--bare] [--template=<template-directory>]

 Feel free to close this ticket if the platforms you are supporting don't
 have such old git versions (we fixed this by installing git 1.8 in
 /usr/local). Git 1.6.5 was released in October 2009. For reference, Python
 2.6 was released in October 2008.
