I am creating release repositories for ceres-solver and it's dependencies glog and gflags.

For glog I want to use the tarball as it has version information, the bare SVN repository does not seem to have tags.

I configured the release repository like this.

Running git-bloom-release groovy gives me the following error:

$ git-bloom-release groovy
Processing release track settings for 'groovy'
What version are you releasing (version should normally be MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH)? 0.3.3

Executing release track 'groovy'
==> bloom-export-upstream tar --tag 0.3.3 --display-uri --name upstream --output-dir /tmp/tmpZgzPa2
usage: bloom-export-upstream [-h] [--tag TAG] [--output-dir OUTPUT_DIR]
                             [--display-uri DISPLAY_URI] [--name NAME] [-d]
                             [--version] [--unsafe]
                             uri {git,hg,svn}

<== Error running command 'bloom-export-upstream tar --tag 0.3.3 --display-uri --name upstream --output-dir /tmp/tmpZgzPa2'

Is the tarball option not fully supported by bloom yet?

I'll have a look at this as soon as possible. In the mean time you can just add the contents of the tarball to a git repo on github to work around this.

Yes, this looks like a bug in bloom, I cannot remember the state of this feature. I think it is implemented, but I might have just messed up the command line arguments parsing. Can you open an issue on the issue tracker:
