You may run git fsck in a checked out repository to confirm if you do not have fsck on checkout enabled.

git clone
Cloning into 'boto'...

What version of git are you using? I haven't had any trouble pulling the repo (though I do get the warning you mention).

I see the same thing, but from what I can tell fixing this will require rebasing/force pushing to master which isn't feasible.

If there's a way to fix this without force pushing master, I'd be open to it. Otherwise, I don't think there's anything we can do.

Ran into this while trying to build electron. Problem was having transfer.fsckobjects = true in my .gitconfig.

Problem was having transfer.fsckobjects = true in my .gitconfig.

The problem is the repo, not the check. I have the same issue; I can temporarily remove that check in order to clone boto but it doesn’t fix the repo issue.
