Perhaps, but the release note is not a place to repeat what the documentation already teaches---it primarily is to enumerate the changed areas, to highlight the things users may want to look up in the documentation, to give them a starting point. You would do something like this, I would think: git fetch $there 'refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*' -- 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
