For those who work with the SyncEvolution upstream repository: I have
implemented a new mechanism for testing patches before integrating them

Any branch which gets pushed as "for-master/<branch name>" will get
merged into the "master" branch by the runtest.py script and thus be
covered by the nightly testing. That also works for older branches, like
After playing with this I ran into a minor issue in the workflow: after
merging or reorganizing a patch, the "for-master/..." branch should be
removed again to avoid needless resp. obsolete merging.
I can delete the branch in the gitorious repo with
git push origin :<branch name>
But then on the nightly build machine,
git fetch origin
will *not* remove the branch.
Can someone think of a solution? I imagine that removing all remote
branches and then doing the "git fetch" should work, but perhaps there
is a more elegant way?
A related question: I noticed that "git fetch" did not get all tags,
whereas "git fetch --tags" did not update all branches. So now I do "git
fetch && git fetch --tags". Can this be combined?
Hmm, probably I need to extend the list of refs to be fetched from
remote "origin". This is what I have currently in .git/config:
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
url = email@example.com:meego-middleware/syncevolution.git
