I believe the wiki repo may now be mirrored in multiple places which appears to have caused it to drop the commits.

Gitolite supports something called redirected pushes which should allow us to fix the issue. arr2036$ git push

Seems to suggest that the wiki to sync is broken and that the script author didn't check for the failure of the sync in that direction before pushing.

It was a little difficult to figure out how to get the commits back with no reflog (it's a bare repo), but found some magic to show dangling commits, and worked back from there.

Unfortunately I couldn't restore the commits themselves, had to create a patch and apply that.

All the git infrastructure on the wiki host is really broken :(
