HEAD detached from 44d4825
nothing to commit, working directory clean

But I now have problem with system (and math)
"The submodule "libs/system" is dirty (I never touched it - honest!)
Merely committing the superproject cannot track or save changes to the
Commit the submodule now or ignore dirty changes?"
Ah - I see I have a build .log file and deleting this makes it go green.
How do I allow keeping unadded untracked .log files in the tree?
Using a modular-boost/.gitignore file?
Using a modular-boost/libs/system/.gitignore file?
Similar problem with generated files in libs/math which was detached HEAD but is
On branch develop
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/develop'.
(use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
