If it doesn’t work with a simpler dummy package, that’s clearly a bug. Or generally feel free to open a github issue for this.
I think I ran into the same issue when the local git repo was in a weird state.. like I hadn't committed yet, or hadn't created a tag yet.. so the git stuff that bro-pkg does got confused. Problem went away on its own once I had things more fleshed out.
