Verbose push/pull and tags

Asked by Javier Collado


When pushing a branch in which no new revision has been added, but a new tag has been created, the output to the command, even using the verbose flag, is:
No new revisions to push.
Nothing seems to have changed

On the other hand when pulling in a branch for which a new tag has been added, the output is (also using the verbose flag):
No revisions to pull.

Hence, in both cases the behaviour is as if nothing has been updated; however, it can be verified that the tag information is indeed being updated so my question is:
Why push/pull --verbose don't display any information about tags?

Best regards,

Before letting this question go away, I just want to summarize it briefly to make sure that the explanation was clear. The problem is that tags are pushed/pulled under the hood and I think that it would be valuable to display some information about this at least when verbose mode is used. Do you agree?

Sure, I agree.

I'm sure a good patch would be accepted if somebody sent one. It's just that nobody has cared enough to do it.
