$ git rev-list --count v3.2..master
$ git rev-list --count v3.3..master
$ git describe --tags master
I would have expected to see v3.3-6378-ga018267, given the documentation:
If multiple tags were found during the walk then the tag which has the
fewest commits different from the input committish will be selected
and output. Here fewest commits different is defined as the number of
commits which would be shown by git log tag..input will be the
smallest number of commits possible.
What's going on here?
The repository: https://bitbucket.org/petsc/petsc
This repository currently uses only lightweight tags. As an experiment,
I replaced both v3.2 and v3.3 with annotated tags, but it did not affect
the 'git describe' output.
