Git may have hooks. For example, OpenShift.org does these steps during push:
* receive the commits
* stops the server
* checkouts master
* builds the project
* starts the server
* deploys the result
All of this should be seen by user. Especially for the cases when something goes wrong. But what NetBeans shows is just:
==[IDE]== Jul 20, 2013 4:08:47 PM Committing... finished.
==[IDE]== Jul 20, 2013 4:09:50 PM Pushing
git push ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/~/git/test.git/ +refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master
My suggestion is to bring up the Output window and let all the information by Git appear there.
Thanks for considering.
I don't think we receive any such information from server. Git commandline client may have but not the java client we use.
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201412130001* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #233106 - Show git output when pushing
I tested it in the latest dev build (201507200001) but neither git pull from upstream nor git push to upstream opens me the output. I enabled the option "Only show the output" :/
Still broken in Beta 8.1. I created a ticket, months ago for this too: https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=243405.
