I beleive this is just a question of aesthetic preferences. The only things tag tames might clash with are other "commit-ish" names such as names of branches or objects (those hashes composed of hex numbers), so both "1.0.0" and "v1.0.0" have the same chances to clash with other names. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
