My app is linked with my Gitlab account and the latest commits are not showing up.
The “not showing up” has 2 flavors:
(1) Yesterday none of my latest commits showed
(2) Today I disconnected and reconnected the link to my repository in the settings and now the commits of my
main branch show but none of my other branches
I have 4 active branches:
main: All the work (new content heavy real commits) is happening here
prod: All other branches mainly merge only the latest state of “main” into them.
This means that the latest commits are mostly merge-commits with the same name over and over again (but with some exceptions in between)
Re-linking the Gitlab repository seems to trigger a refresh.
main: the latest commits are now showing up in the list
prod: still nothing
All the latest commits on my “sub branches” have the same name as e.g. “Merge branch ‘main’ into prod”.
Maybe the script doing the poll-and-show ignores a commit if it has the same name as a previously already shown commit.
This would explain, why I see previous such commits to my sub-branches in the list but only the first one in the long list of equally-named-commits.
So I pushed some uniquely named commits to each of my main + sub-branches.
First none of my commits showed in the list.
After re-connecting my Gitlab repo the latest placeholder commit to my
main branch showed but still nothing from my sub-branches.
Verifying on Gitlab shows that the repository is uptodate on the server.
As I had previously pushed all branches at once I also tried to push them one at a time.
But no difference. The latest commits on my sub-branches are not showing up.
There seems to have been another problem with Gitlab and commits not showing in January that was “solved”. Maybe it was, maybe something was missed.
