[Docs] Misinformation about nesting `!reference`
There is information:
You can't reuse a section that already includes a
!referencetag. Only one level of nesting is supported.
But today my colleague did some refactoring and used something like this:
.notification: icon: - MSG_ICON=$(if [[ $CI_JOB_STATUS == "success" ]]; then echo ":white_check_mark:"; else echo ":warning:"; fi) image_build: - !reference [ .notification, icon ] - ... .actual_job: script: - ... after_script: - !reference [ .notification, image_build ]
and it worked properly
!reference - does it support nesting? If yes, what are the limitations? Or maybe the wording is incorrect, so in fact "one level of nesting is supported" (and then "You can't reuse a section that already includes a
!reference tag" is misleading)?
