I just tried to add a github hosted repository as a subtree to my current project. I get an error for each file like:
* branch master -> FETCH_HEAD
error: Invalid path '/Users/kay/Development/git/MyProject/Assets/Editor/BundleVersionChecker/.gitignore'
The URL is reported as Git repository, there is only the master branch as I just have started and the local relative path points to a non-existing directory name immediately under an existing directory.
I use the embedded git version of SourceTree 1.9.0 reported as 188.8.131.52. Confusingly when I enter git subtree I get:
git: 'subtree' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.
I am new to subtrees but used this project as a submodule before. What I am doing wrong here?
Could you paste the entire output you're experiencing from the start? Perhaps put it in a pastebin for easier reading.
As for the latter problem you're experiencing, subtree is an extension. The command line Git you're using is actually different from the one SourceTree uses (if using embedded). The SourceTree documentation tells you all about this, actually, and provides a link with a guide to getting it working here: http://engineeredweb.com/blog/how-to-install-git-subtree/
Hopefully the latter part helps, let me know about the former point.
My previous comment was wrong in that I accidentally created a submodule (which worked fine).
Now I tried to create a subtree again for another sub-project. At first I ran into the same problems but finally found the solution: The 'Add Subtree' dialog lets you select a directory and uses that as the full path. Editing it to be a relative path as stated in the label fixes the problem.
Maybe a future version of SourceTree can handle this automatically.
