Move a git tag

Submitted by Erik Wegner on

If you have to move a git tag, these are the steps:

  1. Delete the tag on any remote before you push
    git push origin :refs/tags/<tagname>

  2. Replace the tag to reference the most recent commit
    git tag -fa <tagname>

  3. Push the tag to the remote origin
    git push origin --tags
