I notice that almost every tagging example uses a version number with
a prefixed 'v', e.g.
$ tag -a -m "first major point release" v1.0.0
I, on the other hand, have never bothered with 'v' prefix, and have
always done, e.g.:
$ tag -a -m "first major point release" 1.0.0
Is there some reason to use the 'v' that I am unaware? Am I going to
have issues on other platforms or something?
