I have a git job that builds all branches except master. I have the job setup to send email to only the committers using email-ext. The idea being that developers can push their branches to the CI server and then get feedback on if all tests work in the production environment. When a new branch is pushed to the server the build runs and no emails are sent. I'm using version 1.1.19 of the bit plugin, a 2.22 debug version of the email-ext plugin on Jenkins version 1.470. The debug output from the email-ext plugin shows:

20:43:36 An attempt to send an e-mail to empty list of recipients, ignored.

The changeset in Jenkins is indeed empty, although I would think this should show the changes from master or where the branch was created.
