I followed this tutorial:

The github hook calls the sys/fetch_changesets url but redmine does not fetch the new changes because the "git-fetch" command is never executed. When I add this code at the beginning of the "fetch_changesets" method in "models/repository/git.rb" it updates correctly.

system("cd #{self.url} && git fetch")

This would really fix the workflow, this way we can just let our repository system call the /sys/fetch_changesets url and everything in redmine get's updated.

I think redmine should only do this if the repository is a --mirror repository though. Or there should be an option in the redmine settings: "Fetch git repositories before loading the changes in redmine."

I'm also trying to make this work, i.s.o. of running a periodic cron job for all git repository mirrors.

When the hook has been set up, I see "GET /sys/fetch_changesets?key=I7...xv&id=sandbox HTTP/1.1" coming in when pressing GitHub's test button, but it does not cause an update of the local repository.

SCM Creator got support for Github and runs "git fetch" for fetch_changesets. Please try.
