Hello,

short answer: every commit that has a reference (tag, local or remote
branch, etc.) is visible and forever (ie. won’t get garbage collected). As
soon as you remove all references, the commits go invisible and the garbage
collector will remove them after the set number of days (30 by default, as
I recall).

Best,
Gergely
