Title: fossil pull has to be run multiple times
Status: Fixed Type: Incident
Severity: Minor Priority:

Description:
When I updated my copy of the fossil repository I had to run 'fossil pull' twice to get everything. I was updating to [a742cfa29254d810f9119a065e391d4b74fb1b93]

I recovered my previous repository from backup, and did a new checkout (fossil open) before running 'pull' again. This time it worked.

Worse than that, I think.

fossil clone http://www.fossil-scm.org/ myclone.fossil

gets an empty repository, but (many) repeated pulls will then get evertyhing up to date.

This might be due to some subtle incompatibility introduced by [737e76a69fbc2e] or a related check-in. Do you have the same problem using a client built from the latest code, or is this only an issue with older clients?

I've been experiencing this same isssue (empty repo on clone) with recent client (i.e.: approx. [ece2]...). Haven't tried repeated pulls as fix, so can't comment.

This is still going on, it took two attempts to download the latest (updated sqlite version) using fossil version [a742cfa292]. This is what I saw:
