bitbake: fetch2: Remove broken git variables from the environment
The following variables perform no function outside of bitbake: GIT_CONFIG GIT_PROXY_HOST GIT_PROXY_PORT GIT_PROXY_IGNORE GIT_CONFIG only affects the git-config command which is not relevant to the fetcher. This was previously used with the OE GIT_CORE_CONFIG variable which would provide a basic git config to use instead of the user's config. This usage was deprecated by git for over a year now: GIT_PROXY_HOST and GIT_PROXY_PORT are not used by git. GIT_PROXY_IGNORE was an OE construct used to create the custom git config and had no meaning outside of the OE environment. It is not used by git. Remove these variables from the fetcher environment. Users wishing to configure git to work with a proxy should define the GIT_PROXY_COMMAND environment variable to use an external script. NO_PROXY can be used within this script to skip the proxy for certain hosts. (Bitbake rev: e60270bdce6b8c2f8da1a4838aa374da9db3c86a) Signed-off-by: Darren Hart <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
