Here's a simple fix... In Google Code hosting
, if you choose git for your repository, the instructions tell you to clone your repo this way:
git clone https://firstname.lastname@example.org/p/code-golf-etsiit-2012/
However, if you do so, it will be quite difficult, maybe impossible, to push changes back onto the repository. I tried to include my password in a .netrc file, to no avail. What's the fix? Simply clone using this instead:
git clone https://yourusername:email@example.com/p/your-proyect/
That's it! You can then push, merge, and whatever tickles your fancy without a problem.
