Originally reported on Google Code with ID 256

What steps will reproduce the problem:
1. I have manually copied my local .git repo (2.5Gb) to Gitblit git folder
2. Gitblit was restarted
3. During Gitblit startup exception is thrown, Gitblit exits
4. If added repo is removed, Gitblit is started normally

This is a part of gitblit startup log:
 INFO  Gitblit base folder     = C:\incoming\gitblit-1.2.1\data
 INFO  Git repositories folder = C:\incoming\gitblit-1.2.1\data\git
 INFO  Gitblit settings        = C:\incoming\gitblit-1.2.1\data\gitblit.properties
 INFO  Identifying available repositories...

Thanks for the report, but this is not a bug.  You can't put a ".git" folder into the
repositories folder.

You can...
1. rename ".git" to somerepo.git
2. copy the entire working tree to a folder within the repositories folder
3. clone the source repo into the repositories folder

Well, I suppose it is a bug so I will ignore ".git" if i find it.

Hello, thanks for the answer, but is seems another type of issue than you mention. I
have tried both separately:
1. Renamed my .git folder to test.git folder
2. Created new folder under repositories folder and copied my .git folder contents
there

The exception was still thrown. So could it be another limitations for repo contents
that I should check?

Hmmm.  I pushed a fix for the IOOB exception in stringutils... but this won't help you.
 Gitblit thinks there is no relative path relationship between your repositories folder
and your repo.

How about cloning a mirror into your repositories folder instead of messing with dir
copying?  Anything else different about your win filesystem?  Are you using symlinks?

Okay, I have finally resolved my issue under next workflow:

1. Copy my repo .git folder to gitblit\data\git
2. Rename .git folder to repo.git
3. Start Gitblit, the exception is thrown on startup, Gitblit exits
4. Open the shell in repo.git and execute command: git config --bool core.bare true
5. Start the Gitblit, everything works fine, repos are fully accessible

Seems Gitblit differs bare and non-bare repos and my bare repo was marked as non-bare.

Gitblit can work with both bare and non-bare repositories, but Gitblit depends on JGit
which must have been confused by your "half-bare" repo.  I'm glad you figured it out
and we both learned something new.
