    While uploading files via git-lfs, the git command failed:
    - with generic error: "Failed to push some refs

    The issue is fixed when using the latest PHP packages from the remi repository.

    The minimal version of PHP required by Tuleap will be raised to 7.3.15: gerrit #17867.

    PHP 7.3.15 has been released with the fix. I will confirm tomorrow but with my last build from a few days ago of the 7.3 branch, the issue was resolved.

    The issue is caused by a bug in PHP present since PHP 7.3.10/7.4.0 (or to be more precise since https://github.com/php/php-src/commit/05560b67bc87a2bcbfd5b48a48443a62f3311e7d). The bug has been fixed (https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=78902) but is not yet present in one of the released version.

    ATM I have no idea on how work around it while keeping the feature usable. While I do not recommend it, it is possible to increase the memory limit for those requests (see /etc/opt/remi/php73/php-fpm.d/tuleap-long-running-request.conf) so the file you are trying to upload can fit in memory.

    I will keep the request open until the fix is available in one of the PHP version supported by Tuleap.

    @gbonnefille Would you be able to provide us the version of PHP you are currently running (can be obtained with /opt/remi/php73/root/usr/bin/php -v)?

    Hum in fact this one is a bit strange. I have been able to reproduce on two distinct production instances but it seems to work just fine on a my dev instance...
