Hi, I was recently using git-for-each-ref in a script to get a list of remote refs that pointed at a particular commit so that they could automatically be updated and pushed back to that remote. This fails when it comes across refs/remotes/origin/HEAD, which is a symbolic link.
I was able to solve the problem with: ``` git for-each-ref ... --format="%(refname) %(symref)" | grep " $" ``` But that feels a little clumsy to me. I would have expected there to be a flag like `--no-symbolic` that would exclude symbolic refs from the output. So I went ahead and added it :) I could forsee this option also being added to git-branch and git-tag, but decided to keep it to git-for-each-ref to test the waters before investing any further time into it.
