After upgrading from 1.6 to 1.8.2 getting error bellow:

ThoughtWorks.CruiseControl.Core.CruiseControlException: Source control operation failed: fatal: Invalid revision range afe78734110cf5ee2daa4c237c037f1ece5017c4..origin/master

Nothing fancy in project configuration - 2 separate git repositories, branch names. Changing project working dir doesn't affect\resolve error.
short project configuration:


<sourcecontrol type="multi">

After quick investigation - it appears that ccnet will generate 'git log' command using revision number from first(?) git source control. As i can see ThoughtWorks.CruiseControl.Core.Sourcecontrol.Git.GetModifications changed vs. 1.6

The other side of this bug is that ccnet should treat such error as 'exception' and stop integration for that particular project. Because ccnet doesn't treat this error as 'exception' modification checks will be triggered as scheduled... i.e. if user have email notifications enabled - each time modifications checked, failed and result will be emailed.

At this point i wasn't able to figure any workaround, please let me know if there are any.

Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions.

I'm having the exact same issue here.
Thing is, it is not an issue with GIT, but rather an issue with the MULTI source control that does not take care of the fact that any of its sub sourcecontrols will override the IIntegrationResult.SourceControlData value
So what we are seeing is that the first git block tries to use a revision hash from the second block
This could also happen with the SVN block, if the second one has revisions above the last revision of the first block.
What could even be weirder is to have a mix of both with SVN being the last and GIT the first (or the opposite).

Anyway, this is an issue in MultiSourceControl, I'll have a look.
