bup-tag - tag a commit in the bup repository


bup tag

bup tag [-f] <tag name> <committish>

bup tag -d [-f] <tag name>


bup tag lists, creates or deletes a tag in the bup repository.

A tag is an easy way to retrieve a specific commit. It can be used to mark a specific
backup for easier retrieval later.

When called without any arguments, the command lists all tags that can be found in the
repository. When called with a tag name and a commit ID or ref name, it creates a new tag
with the given name, if it doesn't already exist, that points to the commit given in the
second argument. When called with '-d' and a tag name, it removes the given tag, if it

bup exposes the contents of backups with current tags, via any command that lists or shows
backups. They can be found under the /.tag directory. For example, the 'ftp' command
will show the tag named 'tag1' under /.tag/tag1.

Tags are also exposed under the branches from which they can be reached. For example, if
you create a tag named 'important' under branch 'computerX', you will also be able to
retrieve the contents of the backup that was tagged under /computerX/important. This is
done as a convenience, and should the branch 'computerX' be deleted, the contents of the
tagged backup will be available through /.tag/important as long as the tag is not deleted.


-d, --delete
delete a tag

-f, --force
Overwrite the named tag even if it already exists. With -f, don't report a missing
tag as an error.


$ bup tag new-puppet-version hostx-backup

$ bup tag

$ bup ftp "ls /.tag/new-puppet-version"

$ bup tag -d new-puppet-version
