This is what appears in the documentation we ship these days. -t:: --tags:: This is a short-hand for giving "refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*" refspec from the command line, to ask all tags to be fetched and stored locally. Because this acts as an explicit refspec, the default refspecs (configured with the remote.$name.fetch variable) are overridden and not used. http://git-htmldocs.googlecode.com/git/git-fetch.html Previous discussion: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/180636 A more recent one: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/211439/focus=211464 -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
