Run `git submodule sync` when updating extensions.git clones
Closed, DeclinedPublic


We're getting failures due to the issues in T218844...

Can we add git submodule sync --recursive into the mix of git clone/checkout/update for the extensions.git repo?

sync [--recursive] [--] [<path>…​]
Synchronizes submodules' remote URL configuration setting to the value specified in .gitmodules. It will only affect those submodules which already have a URL entry in .git/config (that is the case when they are initialized or freshly added). This is useful when submodule URLs change upstream and you need to update your local repositories accordingly.

git submodule sync synchronizes all submodules while git submodule sync -- A synchronizes submodule "A" only.

If --recursive is specified, this command will recurse into the registered submodules, and sync any nested submodules within.

CI doesn't use mediawiki/extensions.git?

Nop CI does not use mediawiki/extensions.git . It is unclear to me what the issue is about. Feel free to reopen with more details though :)

See IRC discussion. Some of Quibble's repos are randomly still pointing at /r/p/ not /r/ so jobs are fatalling on launch.
