While setting up a new job, I C&P my Git branch name into the "Branch Specifier" under SCM. I didn't realize it, but there was a trailing space in the branch name. This caused the build to fail with:

ERROR: Couldn't find any revision to build. Verify the repository and branch configuration for this job.
When I removed the trailing space from the branch name, everything built fine.
