support landing from a detached head in git
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It would be great if arc supported landing from a detached head in git. This would be nice for those who use a stacked diff workflow.

I use a stacked diff workflow without detaching heads. Can you walk me through your workflow in a little more detail?

I make a number of independent diffs on top of one another in a branch (I have arc set-config --local base 'git:merge-base(HEAD~)'). When I want to land the first one of them, I was hoping to just checkout the commit and land it. Should I be doing something else? I only recently started using this workflow (previously I would do more of a "stacked branches" workflow).
