Is there any way to label code at a particular point in time?

I'm used to using TFS or PVCS and both allow you to label particular revisions so that you can get back to a given point in time. Is there any way to do this with Git?

You use labeling and if you really need restore back then you create a branch for that label.

It's called "tag" in Git.

Hi Ben,

You can attach tags to particular commit using git tag command  or from source-tree you can click on tag button.

You can't attach a tag to multiple commit, but you can attach multiple tags to a single commit.

In case if you want to move a tag from a commit to another commit you can do that as well.
