JGit orphan branch checkout [message #1842652] Sat, 26 June 2021 23:23

I've tried to use CheckoutCommand to create orphan branch, and found that the still has a parent. As I see from the Javadocs and sources, the startCommit have to be defined (or current HEAD is used). This is really different from `git checkout --orphan` which creates branch detached from current history. I tried to set empty start point (.setStartPoint(walk.parseCommit(ObjectId.zeroId()))) but It fails, because zero commit is not resolved.

Could anybody please clarify if it possible to achieve behavior same with git checkout --detach using JGit API?
