Re: [egit-dev] No visual feedback on chosen tag

Hi Manuel,

Thanks for the clarification. And indeed, a tag check out gives me the correct decoration (would be nice if it was available in the context menu).

I still think there's room for improvement though. The normal case is that you work with the head of a branch. If you reset to something else, then what you have in your workspace is somewhat out of the ordinary and I think some visible feedback to indicate this is called for. So let me rephrase what I wrote in the subject to:

"No visual feedback that indicates that what I have isn't the head"

That's because you don't really have the tag 0.11.1. If you've checked
out the master branch and do a reset on another commit, then you still
have the master branch checked out, just with another content. As i
said, checkout that tag, and it will be correctly decorated.

Sorry. I miswrote. I don't want to change the branch. I just want what's
reflected by the 0.11.1 tag. And I seem to be getting that by doing a hard
reset to the tag, but nothing tells me that that's what I have.

You should go into the "branches" menu and select "checkout" of that
branch. You haven't changed branches, just the contents of master, by doing
the below.

I have the org.eclipse.egit.core project checked out in my workspace. To
the right of the project name I see "[egit master]". Since what I really
want is the 0.11.1 branch, I choose "Team" ->    "Reset..." ->    "Tags" ->
  "0.11.1". I also check the "Hard" option before I click the "Reset" button.

The content of the project seems to be replaced, but there's no visible
decoration. How am I supposed to know that I'm now looking at the 0.11.1
