Hi,

Can hornget checkout a git tag? I was trying to update the castle.core
1.2.0 descriptor for use with github, but this

get_from git("git://github.com/castleproject/Castle.Core.git",
"1.2.0")

checks out master silently at HEAD. I know this syntax is for branches
but shouldn't it pick up tags as well?

Horn does not work with git tags as stands  unfortunately.

I have never used git tags myself so I am not entirely sure what is involved.

That's sad, until it does it will never be able to build released projects that live in git.

Any plans on adding this functionality?

A tag is just a pointer to a commit, like a branch. You can 

git checkout tagname 

the same way you would 

git checkout branchname

So horn would just need to check branch names and tag names when one is specified in the descriptor.

I all for it but do not have the time to do it this weekend anyway.

Anybody else fancy having a stab at this?

Hi,

Thanks for pointing that out.  I inadvertently deleted one of the config files.

I had to delete everything to regenerate all the builds against the stable castle descriptors.

It has nearly finished regenerating.  

All will be good again in the world of horn soon.


Cheers

I tried to give a quick look at how to checkout tags. Unluckily I cannot try it since I'm having countless issues with building horn on my machine, but since git can checkout tags just like branches the actual command line in GitSourceControl class, line 86, should be changed to avoid prepending "origin" to the tag name. From that point on it's just a local branch.
