[PATCH] Allow reading "symbolic refs" that point to other refs
This extends the ref reading to understand a "symbolic ref": a ref file that starts with "ref: " and points to another ref file, and thus introduces the notion of ref aliases. This is in preparation of allowing HEAD to eventually not be a symlink, but one of these symbolic refs instead. [jc: Linus originally required the prefix to be "ref: " five bytes and nothing else, but I changed it to allow and strip any number of leading whitespaces to match what update-ref.c does.] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
