re: Thanks for this! I didn't know the difference between lightweight and annotated tags. I also use tags when trying to identify when a bug was intro...
 

For debugging you should really look into git bisect.

Maybe it’s not a good way for you but it’s specially useful and iirc designed for debugging/finding which commit introduced the bugs you’re looking for.

 

Awesome! Thanks! I didn't know about git bisect either!

No problem mate!

I have seen some really interesting articles on it but I am not sure where exactly. I think I could find it if I were to bother but I have actually never used it as I have always used my own system. Even so it’s good to have alternative methods for things and if nothing else it’s something new to learn and by extension come up with new ideas and so on.

It should be remembered too that you can use it for more than just finding a commit a bug was introduced. In the end binary searching is a valuable tool and you can use similar systems for making decisions irl by taking a list of things and breaking them into the keep pile until you finally have two left.

Anyway glad to have offered something useful!

Cheers.
