Host OS osx and apt_get in step.yml


#1

In this step: https://github.com/bitrise-io/bitrise-steplib/pull/1046/files#diff-938183a62d95b25999c16175508c92d4R12
there is a

host_os_tags:

  • osx-10.10

and

apt_get:

  • name: git

at the same time. Apt-get does not seem to be available on the macOS stacks.
Is it somehow intentional?

BTW that step seems to be compatible with all the stacks so there should not be probably any host_os_tags.

Correct. Host tags right now are not used and completely ignored by the CLI.

Apt get / brew deps are handled automatically, based on the actual host, does not depend on the host tags. On Linux the CLI uses the apt get deps, and on macOS the brew deps.

If you develop a step feel free to ignore the host tags. We might add meaning to it later, or remove it completely, not decided yet.
