Description elennaro 2014-10-30 11:03:58 UTC
1) In "create Tag" if we want to overwrite existing tag force overwrite(-f) possibility could be great! E.g. git tag -a -f -m "My new Tag has same name as old one" 0.1-OLD-TAG-NAME
2) "Push to Upstream" could also update tag's of current branch.
3) If I deleted and created tag with same name on another commit "Push..." does not show this tag to be either added/deleted/updated to remote repository.

Log: #248275 - More flexible Tag's support
Fix force update flag in Create Tag dialog.
If selected the tag with an already existing name should be allowed.

"Push to Upstream" could also update tag's of current branch. Still does not pushes tags.
