The description of git tag is not correct.

E.g., --list does not exist, it should be -l instead.

And the example given is also incorrect.

--list works in some versions of Git. What version are you running?

Thanks!

Re: MEAP V05 - 5.4.3 - git tag
I am running CentOS 6.5 with
git version 1.7.1

Given that --list works, the example will fail, as the -- are not positioned correctly "in front of list."

Do you plan to include information about "lightweight" and annotated tags? I would welcome if you mention that.

1.7.1 is a pretty old version of Git and this book is aimed at version 1.8 or above. I'll try and make that more explicit earlier on.

And I don't plan on expanding any more on lightweight or annotated tags, I'm afraid.
