  • On my machine, "git tag" appears to give the tags in alphabetical order, not in chronological order. So, this gives the changes since the tag that is last alphabetically, not chronologically. Those may be different if you don't name your tags after version numbers.
    • that's a strange requirement, but you can use something like this:

      git-for-each-ref refs/tags/* --format="%(tag)" --sort="taggerdate"

      Well, that only works for annotated tags... use '%(refname)' instead of '%(tag)' and add '--sort=committerdate' for a version that works with lightweight tags too. It just looks slightly uglier :-)

  • You should look at git bisect :)

  • Did you notice that the bash/zsh tab-completion will also tab complete that alias command you defined?

    Also, be warned that when you clone, it doesn't clone absolutely everything unless you use --mirror - by default it will just clone "heads" and "tags"
