Updating tags (that already exist)

Asked by Javier Collado


When working with a branch in which a tags is already defined, if an attempt to create the very same tag is made, the following error is returned:
bzr: ERROR: Tag <tag_name> already exists.

On the other hand, if the '--force' option is used, the tags is updated and the message that is displayed in the standard output is:
Created tag <tag_name>.

Isn't this a little misleading? I would personally prefer to get back the following message:
Updated tag <tag_name>.

Best regards,
