1156 <para>
1157 When fetching source from a Git repository using
1158 <link linkend='var-SRC_URI'><filename>SRC_URI</filename></link>,
1159 BitBake will now validate the
1160 <link linkend='var-SRCREV'><filename>SRCREV</filename></link>
1161 value against the branch.
1162 You can specify the branch using the following form:
1163 <literallayout class='monospaced'>
1164 SRC_URI = "git://server.name/repository;branch=&lt;branchname&gt;"
1165 </literallayout>
1166 If you do not specify a branch, BitBake looks
1167 in the default "master" branch.

1170 <para>
1171 Alternatively, if you need to bypass this check (e.g.
1172 if you are fetching a revision corresponding to a tag that
1173 is not on any branch), you can add ";nobranch=1" to
1174 the end of the URL within <filename>SRC_URI</filename>.
