Yesterday I created an annotated tag to mark the commit for a release.

Today, after I realized a bug in what we released, I created a bugfix branch from the tag, created and merged a PR branch back to the bugfix branch, then edited the tag in the remote repository (BitBucket) to refer to the new replaced commit on the bugfix branch. I verified that the new commit it points to is correct.

I then, for verification sake, wanted to switch to the new tag in my workspace. I tried doing a "Fetch from upstream" and even a "Pull", but when I drill down into the "Switch to" dialog, the tag that I set still has the old commit id. I even tried restarting Eclipse. It's still wrong.

Ah. Got it. It's not that simple to get tags that have changed. I had to select "Remote"->"Fetch...", then "Always fetch tags ...".

git (and also jgit) does not download a modified tag behind your back, you need to run a forced fetch to get such updates.
