Wrong commit ID when pushing annotated tag

The plugin works fine when pushing changes to branch or lightweight tag. However, when annotated is pushed the commit id passed to the external script does not match the tag's commit ID. As commit id is the only way to uniquely identify the pushed update in environment with multiple repos/branches, the execution of external script fails as based on passed commit ID it can not identify repo/tag.

Charles, yes this answers the question. Thank you for help.

Hi Robert,

Just to confirm you're talking about the "External Hooks" plugin? If you're writing your own script for that plugin you can use manual git commands to find that out.

Firstly you need to know if it's a tag or commit:

> git cat-file -t $to_ref

If that is 'tag' rather than 'commit' you need to find the referenced commit:

> git rev-parse $to_ref^{commit}

Does that help? Are we talking about the same thing?
