I was going to raise an issue in gitlab.org but it suggested that I ask here first.
We are seeing a strange problem when trying to create a merge request towards a source branch other than master. After some testing we see this problem with only one particular issue. This issue has a ‘.’ character in the title. When I removed the dot, then it was again possible to create an MR towards a specific source branch.
- create or edit an existing issue so that the issue has a ‘.’ in the title like “Update .gitignore”
- create an MR from this issue pointing a source branch other than the default (master, main), using the dropdown to the right of the “Create Merge Request” button
- click on “Create Merge Request” button in the dropdown
- get directed to an error page which looks like the compare branch page
Does anyone else see the same problem?
