Subject: [PATCH v2] lib/bb/tests/ set initial branch
Date: Mon, 15 May 2023 08:46:50 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: "Bergin, Peter" <>

If you have a host where the git config for initial branch
name is something else than 'master' the unittest will fail
as they assume the default branch name is 'master'. Fix this
by explicitly set the intial branch name at 'git init'.
