Component/s: Userspace


Trying to build a package from git that has sub-modules brought from third-party git fails.

This bug has been fixed upstream

Steps to Reproduce

1. make import-package - package type - New Empty Project
package name: "google-api-python-client"

This adds the layer so you don't have to create a new project.

2. Replace the content of the from layers/local/recipes-local/ with


SUMMARY = "Google API Client Library for Python"
DESCRIPTION = "The Google API Client for Python is a client library for accessing the Plus, Moderator, and many other Google APIs."
SECTION = "devel/python"
LICENSE = "Apache-2.0"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://LICENSE;md5=69288519d6bfb758121ede64d27585ce"

SRC_URI = "gitsm:// "

S = "${WORKDIR}/git"

SRCREV = "62af5a96988404207da9fc0e4aff2f6cefcb26c2"
PR = "r0"

inherit setuptools


and run make -C build google-api-python-client

3. Observe results: "cp: cannot stat '/HDD/6_29/bitbake_build/downloads/git2/': No such file or directory" . This message is the same as the one in the yocto defect.
