Cannot lock .git/index

See original GitHub issue

I’m interesting in trying out this project, but having some trouble getting started.

  • If I have a multi-module project, do I need to install anything in the sub-projects?
  • Do I need to run mvn initialize or is that a stage that happens automatically when I run mvn compile or mvn test?
  • I’m not noticing anything happening. Are there any common errors I might be making?

Fixed correctly in .

Starting with 1.36, the plugin is now git commit -a compliant 🎉

I was having this issue as well when adding files and commiting in one command:

git commit -a -m "commit message"

It works when I break it into separate commands to add and commit:

git add -A
git commit -m "commit message"
