Subject: git-p4: cloning with a change number does not import all files
Date: Sat, 25 Nov 2017 15:35:56 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I created a git repository with these commands:
  git p4 clone //perforce/path@123456 repo
  cd repo
  git p4 rebase

Some files created before the change 123456 do not exist in git
history. I do see why,
but those files were not modified after that change number.

If I use "git p4 sync --detect-branches" instead of "git p4 rebase",
the branch contains
all the files, but not the main trunk, and they appear to be added in
the first commit of
the branch.

To avoid the problem, I must clone with "@all" or with the change number when
//perforce/path was created, which is significantly longer.
