Tags specify significant points in a repository’s history such as releases and stable builds.
Annotated tags are used to identify project milestones such as when the application is ready for release. Annotated tags have a comment, creator, date, and timestamp. They are stored in Dimensions CM as baselines.
- Only tags for changesets that are being cloned are created. For example, if you are cloning to a depth of three changesets (
--depth=3), and the fourth oldest changeset has a tag, that tag is excluded from the fetch.
- You cannot create annotated tags with topic streams.
There are many way to work with tags and the topics below provide some examples. For more information, see the Git documentation.
