    There are fixes for Git bugs in the current pre-release... have you tried that? Alpha doesn't employ any kind of testing protocol so it'll probably be ok to use in the next few pre-releases after developers have tested and reported bugs they find.

    We just moved to the June production version and still get this error message. Has anyone been able to get the Git feature to work in the current production release (5887-5315)?

    I was able to get this to work by manually creating a blank file in my C:\USERS\(username) folder called _NETRC. Once I did this, I restarted Alpha and pushed and it created a new Master branch correctly in my Github repository.

    Have you applied the Hotfixes for 5887? Here are the details for one of them...

    Code:
    Hotfix - Various Fixes - Web Control panel - Fixes an issue where a custom column in the Web Control Panel was more than 260 characters, UX Builder - Fixes a cosmetic issue when you move the position of a control in the UX Builder, Web Control Panel - GitHub - Fixes an issue when pushing to GitHub if an existing _netrc file was not found.

    David - you caught me on that one. I applied the first hot fix but not the second one that fixes the issue. Thanks!

    I find I must check the "official" release page for hot fixes and pre-release page every day for bug fixes... and then test everything because the fixes may not have been tested.

    There's a hot-fix for 5887?? I don't see any links? ... https://alphaanywheredownloads.s3.am...Downloads.html

    Disregard, I found them. They are in the release notes. They should be on the official download page or at least a note telling people there is a hotfix to download.

    There were 4 hotfixes for 5887. They combined 3 into one because the notes for the hotfixes were so confusing and contradictory. So now there are 2 hotfixes. You must check the "official" release notes page... and the pre-release notes page every day.

    The one big issue I see with the current (and very new) implementation of Git source integration is that there doesn't seem to be a way to control branching. Without branching, I haven't been able to turn on tracking to allow us to use this in a team source environment. When I try to pull from Master, I get the message:

    There is no tracking information for the current branch.
    Please specify which branch you want to merge with.
    See git-pull(1) for details.
    git pull <remote> <branch>
    If you wish to set tracking information for this branch you can do so with:
    git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/<branch> master
    Because we can't pull tracked changes, we are unable to synchronize between team members. That's one of the primary benefits of source control. Maybe I'm missing a step in Alpha but currently we are continuing to use the standard Git GUI interface for our project.
