No, we are not trying to upload to Github. We want to keep our master repository on a different server on-site. We are not currently using a source control product. I was trying to take our current COBOL solution, which contains 22 projects (each containing many COBOL programs), and add it to Git source control.
When I open the startup solution and try adding it to source control, I get a warning message that “a Git repository cannot be automatically initialized, … that items referenced exist outside of the solution and therefore cannot be tracked by Git”.
I think this might be because the startup solution is a COBOL linked library but regardless it creates the .git , .gitattributes and .gitignore files but does not actually acknowledge any COBOL program changes.
I can’t seem to find and documentation to address my issue of adding an existing COBOL solution to Git source control.
