Fix an issue when syncing with --use-superproject and clone bundles.

It is possible that a clone bundle contained the object referenced by
the branch in the manifest and in the superproject, but not the branch
itself (for example, the branch may be newly created from an existing
branch, or is not vislble to the user downloading the clone bundle).

When --use-superproject is enabled, because we are overriding
revisionExpr with the SHA1 revision provided by the superproject, the
verification step would succeed, but because the expected branch do not
exist, it would confuse git-repo at a later time, as it is expecting the
remote branch to exist in the local clone.

In project.py, fix this by making SetRevisionId() to always remember
the actual branch name and verify it in _CheckForImmutableRevision()
so that we only skip the fetch step when both objects exists locally.

repo

Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.

Contact

Please use the repo-discuss mailing list or issue tracker for questions.

You can file a new bug report under the “repo” component.

Please do not e-mail individual developers for support. They do not have the bandwidth for it, and often times questions have already been asked on repo-discuss or bugs posted to the issue tracker. So please search those sites first.

Install

Many distros include repo, so you might be able to install from there.

# Debian/Ubuntu.
$ sudo apt-get install repo

# Gentoo.
$ sudo emerge dev-vcs/repo

You can install it manually as well as it's a single script.

$ mkdir -p ~/.bin
$ PATH="${HOME}/.bin:${PATH}"
$ curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/.bin/repo
$ chmod a+rx ~/.bin/repo
