I use SourceTree
to manage all my Git
repositories, it's a great tool but sometimes something goes wrong with remote tags refs in one of my work repositories and I get error messages when I do a push that tells me that a bunch of tags have been rejected. Now I never actually create any tags so this is a little confusing. Cloning a fresh version of the repository fixes this but is not a solution all the time, especially if you have a bunch of stashes. Luckily there is an option in SourceTree
to disable pushing tags to remotes.
This is the kind of error message I get...
The culprit is shown below. In the 'push'
dialog there is an option to 'Push all tags'
. Unticking that makes the errors go away.
There is a better way to do this via Preferences
under the 'Git'
tab simply untick 'Push all tags to remotes'
and you're done.
