Can anyone here tell me of cases when they felt its was necessary to
re-tag a repo (with the same tag as had been used previously)?
Git allows this, though in the docs it clearly warns against it,
especially if you have pushed the tags. But it still does not forbid
it and even provides a way to delete remote tags if need be. Is that
such a bad idea that git should remove this feature? Or are their
legitimate reasons/scenarios to let the developer this flexability?
