We decided to try out Team Foundation Service (the TFS cloud version) because it has Git support which would (we hoped) help us manage both our VisualStudio and MonoDevelop code in one place.
The question is how to connect to the TFS git service from MonoDevelop? From what I can see, I should use HTTPS protocol, for server I just type the name of our TFS service, and for user I type in my live id firstname.lastname@example.org and try to connect.
The problem is the url which becomes something like this:
Note the two @ signs in the url. Seems that whatever git tools are used behind MonoDevelop barfs on this, the error from version control is:
NGit.Api.Errors.JGitInternalException: Exception caught during execution of fetch command ---> NGit.Errors.NotSupportedException: Invalid URL
If I try to omit the user name from the version Control dialog, I get another error about unauthorized access.
Is there a way to enter/store git username and password somewhere on the mac or in MonoDevelop? Or can I enter the @ sign encoded somehow?
According to the answer to your stackoverflow question (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13837728) it sounds like Team Foundation Service does not serve git. And the CodePlex Git instructions show using a username, not an email address. So I don't know whether there is such a thing as a git server using email addresses as usernames. But maybe we should url-encode the username field before combining it into the ULR.
Yes, you are right. The TFS "cloud service" is not serving git as I thought, so this is not a bug and should be closed. It would be super great though if someone came up with good support for TFS from MD eventually!
I'm marking this as resolved/invalid.
