forall: Clarify expansion of REPO_ environment values with -c If a user executes: repo forall -c echo $REPO_PROJECT then $REPO_NAME is expanded by the user's shell first, and passed as $1 to the shell that executes echo. This will either result in no output, or output of whatever REPO_NAME is set to in the user's shell. Either way, this is an unexpected result. The correct way to do it is: repo forall -c 'echo $REPO_PROJECT' such that $REPO_NAME is passed in to the shell literally, and then expanded to the value set in the environment that was passed to the shell. Update the documentation to make this clearer. Change-Id: I713caee914172ad8d8f0fafacd27026502436f0d
Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.
