Feature request: treat git tags as branches

Dock store shows each git branch as a version of a tool. But branches have a temporary sense to them, while tags seem more permanent. I think it would be nice to be able to tag a git repo to signify that a certain version is what was used for some analysis.

While I could use a branch for that, using tags seems like a more appropriate way.



Hi Yossi!

When you make tags in a synced GitHub repository, those tags should show up as individual Dockstore versions. If you browse to the Versions tab, you should see both your tool’s tagged versions and any branches.

Let us know if you’re having a problem using this feature. We appreciate the feedback and may need to improve our documentation to make this capability more clear!



I was failing to push the tags up to github…thanks for the swift reply.
