I’ve some old file in my git repo that I need to remove them. Unfortunately there’re special characters like ~ in the name and I think it is here my problem:
remote: FATAL: invalid characters in ref or filename: 'VREF/NAME/modules/cobbler/templates/rhel-XXXXX.cfg.erb~HEAD' remote: remote: error: hook declined to update refs/heads/master To github:puppet ! [remote rejected] master -> master (hook declined) error: failed to push some refs to 'github:puppet'
After some research I’ve found that it is possible to bypass it with some configuration in .gitolite.rc like this one (at the end of file):
$REF_OR_FILENAME_PATT = qr(^[0-9a-zA-Z][-0-9a-zA-Z._\@/+ :,~]*$);
or this one:
$UNSAFE_PATT = qr([#$&()|<>]);`
Do you have any experience with this? I’m on the right way or do you have any other ideas?
Thanks and best regards, H
