git tags and pushing to a remote repo

Tags are useful to mark specific versions or releases of your code in a repo on a given branch. To tag everything on the current branch, use:

git tag new-tag-name

To push a new tag to a remote repo, you can either push all tags (which is not recommended):

git push remote-name --tags

or push a specific tag:

git push remote-name tag-name
