Git Repository Reports Incorrect Number of Committers

Adding a Git repository to Fisheye with a Starter license (10 users) installed will sometimes produce an error that there are more than 10 committers even though there are less than 10 in the repository.

Repository index failed due to error - class com.atlassian.fisheye.dvcs.handler.DvcsProcessRuntimeException: com.cenqua.fisheye.LicensePolicyException: Exceeded number of allowed committers


This is a bug in early versions of Fisheye.  Please confirm that there are less than 10 committers in the repository by running the following command:

git log --raw | grep "^Author: " | sort | uniq -c

This will list all unique committers in the repository.


Upgrade to the latest version of Fisheye to resolve this issue.
