I'm trying to push changes to new repository on Git but i have that error.

"funny refname"

Also, anytime that i try to do it, i must delete my credential in keychain. What could i do?

    For the "funny refname" error, make sure the target branch is being specified as "refs/heads/your_branch" and not just "your_branch".

    I have no idea on the keychain issue.

    Where i must set target branch in project?

    Version Control -> Manage Branches and Remotes.

    Edit on the branch that has the issues.

    I have tracked the cause of this and issued a fix. It will take some time for it to reach beta/stable channels.

    When it's planned deploy in stable version?

  • Is there any screenshots of this? I'm trying to use Bitbucket, but getting no where. I have a branch of "master" under "Branches", and "refs/heads/origin" under "Remote Sources" for my bitbucket account. This still ends in "funny refname" after the "Writing Objects" step of a "Push Changes" command.

    Pushing new branches should be done outside Xamarin Studio until this fix hits stable. The way this issue was triggered was when you created a new branch locally, and in the push dialog you didn't have anything selected in the remote tag list. This is fixed in the latest alpha, and I don't know if it hit stable release yet.
