Commit was associated with unrelated diff
Closed, InvalidPublic


Someone reported this to me on our install... It seems that a commit has associated with a revision which is seemingly unrelated. The commit message is as follows:

Does clicking "Explain Why" explain why?

There is no relevant "explain why" link because there is no transaction for someone added a commit: rPPfd5a74ad3fa1 on D19839 or someone added a differential revision: D19839 on rPPfd5a74ad3fa1.

This happened again today (for my own future reference, see D20770 on our install).

This happened again today. I ran for REPO in $(./bin/repository list); do ./bin/repository reparse --message $REPO; done and a whole lot of badness ensued.

This is interesting. We had an abandoned diff which got closed by ./bin/repository reparse. If I click on "Explain Why" then it says We didn't find a "Differential Revision" field in the commit message. That doesn't really make sense to me, is this a bug?
