We can, but do we _need_ to? Adding another magical symbolic ref that has limited scope should not be a huge task, as the effects can be documented, but another magical symbolic ref that does *exactly* the same as HEAD would require too many changes in the code and documentation it's not even worth considering, especially if we don't _need_ to. -- Felipe Contreras -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
