When starting a branch, do not use a tag or change value for branch.merge When starting a branch, branch.merge is set to project revision unless the revision is a SHA1. In that case, branch.merge is set to dest_branch if defined or manifest default revision otherwise. This special handling allows repo upload to work when the project revision is a SHA1. Extend the special handling to also happen when the project revision is a tag value or a change value so that repo upload will work in those case as well.

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.
