Drone calling wrong URL on gitea tag create hook

The webhook when creating a tag always returns 404, I’m using drone 0.7.

Note: yes, my x-forwarded-things are OK since a push works perfectly, here is the create for tags which doesn’t works.

According to some issues I found (https://discourse.drone.io/t/drone-0-5-817-gitea-a-gogs-fork-tag-webhook-404/105/5, https://github.com/drone/drone/issues/1870 then https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issues/426), drone is likely using the wrong url to get the .drone.yml file for tag push.

I can manually access to “https://mygitea/api/v1/repos/dashie/somerepository/raw/v0.4.2/.drone.yml” without the extras “refs/tag”, with refs/tags it will fails.

But in the log from the nginx serving gitea:
GET /api/v1/repos/dashie/somerepository/raw//.drone.yml HTTP/1.1" 404 3544 "-" "Go-http-client/1.1

This is an URL called by drone, and the tag is missing “/raw//.drone.yml”

Is that a new bug or incompatibility with the/my current gitea (1.2.0+rc2) webhook ?

For reference, the payload my gitea is pushing:

Maybe, gitea has made a number of breaking changes, including a breaking change to authorization that prevent cloning repositories [1]. Or it could be an issue with the drone gitea driver which is relatively immature. I use drone with gogs and do not have any issues, fwiw.

I would recommend sending a patch to either drone or gitea you are experiencing issues. The gitea integration is community maintained and not something that I personally support.

But as stated, a push event works perfectly, drone can clone and do it job without issue on a push event.

And as the log extract tells me, it’s not a clone issue but a missing thing in an URL drone is creating and calling.

I would recommend submitting a patch in this case.
