      Description

      To reproduce:

      • Set up a job that checks out a project from git
      • Set "Branches to build" specifier to something/somethingelse (that's valid in your git project)
      • Try to build

      This gives me the following error:
      ERROR: Couldn't find any revision to build. Verify the repository and branch configuration for this job.

      Doing the following makes the job build fine:

      • git checkout -b something-somethingelse something/something else
      • git push origin something-somethingelse
      • Set "Branches to build" specifier to something-somethingelse

            Try origin/something/somethingelse - if it just sees one /, it's going to take the first part as the remote and get confused.

            A workaroung that works for me is to spacify two branches to build, first master and then the one I actually want to build. Interestingly, only one branch is built this way, the second one.

            using / in branch name is a bad idea as it's confusing with remote name. To disambiguate, need to always set <remote>/<branchnamemaybewithslash>
