Subject: "bad revision" fetch error when fetching missing objects from partial clones
Date: Fri, 7 May 2021 19:56:22 +0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I have a copy of Gitea application repository [1] on my local Git
server on my computer. I was playing with partial clones using that
repository as remote.

I began with blobless clone the repo by:

$ git clone https://<myhost>/bagas/gitea.git gitea --filter=blob:none

Then I tried to fetch missing objects. First, I gathered list of them:

$ git rev-list --objects --all --missing=print | grep -o -P '^\?\K\w+' > .git/missing.list

I had asked how to properly fetch objects from the list above before on
this list, and brian m. carlson (CC'ed) suggested [2] that I should
use xargs:

$ xargs git fetch origin < .git/missing.list

I expected that I received all missing objects. However, the error message
I got was something like below, repeated:

> remote: ...<skipped>
> Receiving objects: 100% (64/64), 154.49 KiB | 2.97 MiB/s, done.
> remote: ...<skipped>
> Receiving objects: 100% (37/37), 168.35 KiB | 4.95 MiB/s, done.
> Resolving deltas: 100% (5/5), done.
> Resolving deltas: 100% (49/49), completed with 47 local objects.
> fatal: bad revision 'd5e9cd36ab21839af3d116eff3221c53f6ca7fd6'
> error: https://<myhost>/bagas/gitea.git did not send all necessary objects

Then I repeated the object list gathering and fetching above, and the error
still occured. Even I tried fetching only one of problematic object above
and still errored.

When I inspected that object with `git cat-file -p` from my other, full
clone version (which I used for submitting changes upstream), the object
is properly displayed (in this case as source code in Go).

Note that I have uploadpack.allowfilter=true config on the server.

Am I missing something?
