Eclipse eGit push bug – SOLVED

After upgrading to Helios and therefore eGit 0.8.4, I could no-longer push to git repos using pre-configured remotes. Adding the same remote manually at time of push works, but is annoying. This is a known bug and is fixed in the code, but won’t be pushed out for the current 0.8 series (for some reason). The bug report has a simple work-around which fixes the problem. Simply edit your repo’s .git/config file and copy the url line and change it to pushurl – problem solved.

Update: Thanks to J Bruni’s comment, if you have a pushurl but not a url entry, do the reverse of above – copy pushurl and rename to url.
