How does Stash respond to an unsupported version of a git client?


I'm evaluating a migration from SVN to git, and we're considering Stash for the server. Stash as requiring git version 1.6.6+ for the client, and then there are a number of specific versions which are not supported.

My question is, what will happen if I try to use an unsupported version of git to connect to Stash (clone, push, etc.)? Will the client be prevented from connecting? Will there be an informative error message?

The unsupported versions mentioned on the page are for git on the server. For clients the only requirement is 1.6.6+. If you attempt to clone with an earlier version of git, Stash will report that it received an invalid git request.
