I have a query about "Detached HEAD" status after a Metacello/Iceberg
cascade load of required packages. Starting with the general questions...
Is that a common status for this scenario?
How to leave the status looking good as "Up to date"?
Here is a case example...
To avoid the a Filetree repo "filename too long" error on Windows,
I pre-cloned the repo to specify s shorter path name...
Repositories > Add > Clone from github.com
Project name: Mocketry
Local directory: C:\Temp\Mocketry
Then in Playground evaluated...
This cascade loaded Ghost and StateSpecs repos leaving them
with a status of "Detached HEAD".
What does this mean?
And how to have these load cleanly so they are left "Up to date" ?
To ease others testing on Windows, I forked the repo and converted to Tonel,
so the same result comes by just evaluating....
P.S. I've issued a PR upstream for the Tonel conversion.
