Hi Fabian,

Could you please try the merge for the other branch? Or please give me the url of the GitHub package, and tell me which branch and I’ll see what the problem is.

Or try it and copy the commands in the email along with the output.

I need more information to help you resolve this.

I tried the “--allow-unrelated-histories” option, but it did not really work: after resolving a bunch of merge conflicts, pulling again from the BioC git and resolving merge conflicts again, I am able to push to BioC. However, if I then want to merge from another branch of our github, I get unrelated histories again.
