(sorry, forgot "subject" in last mail)






I tried to upload my small patch


  Added "wireshark-win32-libs/" and "wireshark-win64-libs/" to ".gitignore"


without success. I proceeded as follows (Windows 7, starting from parent dir after deleting previous "wireshark" dir:


  $ git clone https://[email protected]/review/wireshark
  $ cd wireshark
  $ ls .git/hooks
then after noting "commit-msg*" was missing
  $ cd .git/hooks
  $ wget --no-check-certificate https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/tools/hooks/commit-msg
  $ cd -
to install the hook.
Then I did my small change in ".gitignore", then
  $ git add .


  $ git status


then after noting no parasitic stuff (such as wireshark-win32-libs/) had been added

  $ git commit -a


then after noting Change-Id line had been inserted


  $ git review -f


to push. This was apparently successful, however with message "Could not remove master" or similar.


To verify, I deleted my local "wireshark" dir, and downloaded again with


  $ git clone https://[email protected]/review/wireshark
However, my small patch was not present in git log, ie the upload failed.
What did I do wrong???


Best regards,
