Gatekeeper merging has stopped merging changes

We are using github as a repo and have a build using the gatekeeper that was merging changes from our ci branch into our staging branch. This was working properly, but now seems to have stopped merging any changes.

Here is what git log shows for the ci branch:

And here is a snippet from the build log (attached):

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:15 Checking out revision 5b7e3798c41cc8ed49ac0a6292e7b31eaa452061.

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:15 Creating local git repository in '/disk1/Bamboo/xml-data/build-dir/PUPPET-MAIN1-JOB1/.git'.

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:15 /usr/bin/git log -1 --format=%d --decorate=full 5b7e3798c41cc8ed49ac0a6292e7b31eaa452061

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:16 /usr/bin/git checkout -f staging

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:16 Already on 'staging'

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:16 Merging code from PUPPET-MAIN1-JOB1, revision 9ab1058e9c9de6aa148449e798feb63c71dda554

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:18 Merged new changesets from PUPPET-MAIN1-JOB1

simple 14-Sep-2012 14:34:18 Updated source code to revision: 5b7e3798c41cc8ed49ac0a6292e7b31eaa452061

As you can see, it appears to check out 5b7e3798c41cc8ed49ac0a6292e7b31eaa452061 and merge changes from 9ab1058e9c9de6aa148449e798feb63c71dda554, which seems correct, but then it says it is updating to the older 5b7e3798c41cc8ed49ac0a6292e7b31eaa452061 and no changes ever get pushed on the staging branch.

Are you using Bamboo or other product to manage merging or management of your repos?

We are using Bamboo. Sorry, I posted this through the ticketing system and some info got left out. I am also adding the attachements.

No problem :) It's likely that these issues might require some in-depth debugging though, so it might be best to go through our support team if you don't get a response here;

Let us know the answer here if you do go that route.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
