Transfering uncommitted code between machines¶
As regular tarball¶
For this make sure that you also take the .git directory otherwise compilation will complain with:
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git CMake Error at cmake/ConfigGitRevision.cmake:9 (string): string sub-command STRIP requires two arguments.
Also make sure that you get all the external sources. In other words if you manually tar up a fresh DIRAC clone without .git that has never been built, externals will be missing.
Using “make release” tarball¶
The tarball produced with make release does not require Git.
This should work. But even better is git clone over ssh (below).
You can git clone from one machine to another. Note that you cannot push to a non-bare repository. In other words if you clone a regular clone, you cannot push to it.
