Push code to git project on staging.launchpad.net

Asked by Julian Mehne on 2017-10-16


to check out launchpad's git support, I opened a test project in the staging area. On the configuration page, it says I should use the following URL to setup a remote:

git+ssh://<email address hidden>/mnemosyne-test-git

Yet, when trying to push the code afterwards, I get the following error message:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname git.staging.paddev.net: Name or service not known
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

So, it seems to me that the URL is wrong - what is the correct URL to use, then?

The staging instance of Launchpad doesn't yet have git support, and apparently we haven't succeeded in turning off the relevant bits of the UI to match. If you do the same steps on qastaging.launchpad.net instead, though, you should get what you need, with directions pointing to git.qastaging.paddev.net.
