When Gitflows in the new repository is initialized via Sourcetree (3.1.2), on one computer it doesn't offer Start Feature, but Finish Feature option. If the Start Feature is selected from Other Actions dialog, it seems to be working, but the status of the repository is somehow affected. This feature branch cannot be merged. And also other starting/finishing operations (e.g. start Release) are confused.
Everything works correctly on another computer. Is there any Gitflow status which could be somehow reset?
Win 10 64-bit, Git 2.21
Is it possible the git-flow state was already committed and then pull from another user?
You can see what git-flows underlying view of the state of the repository from the command like, e.g.
>Git flow feature list
etc see https://github.com/nvie/gitflow/wiki/Command-Line-Arguments
Sourcetree will show options depending on what it sees as the current state of the repository, I.e. if it believes the current branch is an open feature then the options it shows by default will be those to do with completing that feature.
Is that repository on that workstation on a feature branch?
I'm currently using the System Git version 2.21.0/LibGit2Sharp 0.25.4 + git-lfs v2.7.1. If I switch to the embedded version, which is 2.20.1/LibGit2Sharp 0.25.4 + git-lfs v2.6.1, then the Finish Hotfix menu action appears. I haven't tried it yet, because I haven't finished the hotfix yet, but just the fact that it is there now when it wasn't before gives me a bit of confidence.
