Whatever new awaits you, begin it here. In an entirely reimagined Jira. 

If you receive the following error when opening SourceTree or other applications installed in your Mac OS X, then here is how you can solve it. Sometimes people make things more cryptic than it needs to be.

Error encountered

‘git status’ failed with code 69:’

Agreeing to the Xcode/iOS license requires admin privileges, please re-run as root via sudo.

And here is the example of the screenshot:2015-09-24_14-50-56

Solution:

The message means that you need to open XCode and, since, it hasn’t run since the last update, you need to accept the new EULA agreement that’s part of the updated XCode. Once you accept the license, close XCode, then go back to the other application that was throwing the error.

New roadmaps, more flexible boards, and dozens of new integrations. And that's just the beginning.
