      Description

      When the Git SCM plugin cannot find the 'Branches to build' target or any ref to build, it reports a 'Nothing to do' error, which is not very helpful or informative.

      I'm attaching a one-line patch (ref-not-found.diff) that will change the error message to print the bad reference and more clearly indicate the problem.
