The problem is: I cant clone "ironmaiden-808-foss" sources as described in zimbra wiki ( https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Building_Zimbra_using_Git
)! Cloning "ironmaiden-807-foss" is OK, but ironmaiden-808-foss is not due to missing repo or incorrect rights. How did you get the source??
The problem is, they're using that horribly bugging "git-fusion" for mirroring from p4 to git.
And they're even using it the wrong way, so the history is messed up (eg. no common
ancestors between branches, shortened history, etc).
Even worse: they dont even have stable release tags (well, p4 doesn't know that concept at all,
instead it only supports labeling groups of files - a totally different, which by the way makes
it very easy to mess things up ;-p).
The fact that they're playing around w/ that horrible tool p4 also explains why development,
especially fixes for existing releases, take to long. And by reading though their bugzilla
comments, it gets pretty clear they're having completely wrong workflows (eg. doing
bugfixes in the mainline first, then manually backporting them to older maintenance branches).
Of course, that's a total mess and just burns resources.
Perforce and its total lack of support for sophisticated workflows (eg. no rebase) is one
of the major problem makers.
