[users at bb.net] new 0.9.6 installation not retrieving any changes

I've been a long-time user of a 0.8.x installation. Today I decided to
migrate that to a 0.9 installation. I've read the 8-to-9 text. From
there I decided to start over with a completely new 0.9 installation.

So I purged buildbot 0.8.x and installed 0.9.6 via "pip install …". I
called "build create-master" in an empty directory, copied
"master.cfg.sample" to "master.cfg". Next I changed the URL to the git
repository in master.cfg to point to my own repository. Finally I
started the instance with "buildbot start".

So far, so good; "twisted.log" shows the master starting and GitPoller
doing some work.

However, when I visit the web interface there are no changes shown at
all. The waterfall view says that there are no changes. And "SELECT
COUNT(*) FROM changes | sqlite3 state.sqlite" says that there are 0

The poller has definitely done something: the git repository is present
in "gitpoller-work"; that whole directory is 144 MB, which is exactly
how big a bare clone of my repository should be.

So: how do I proceed from here? If I can't even get changes into the DB
via GitPoller? How do I test stuff?

Any help appreciated! Thanks.

Kind regards,
