In one of my repos, when I check out my default branch, I see an .hgtags file there. But it disappears when I check out my develop branch. Is this a problem?
I imagine that if I add a tag to my develop branch, I will magically get a .hgtags file for that branch. I don't add tags to the develop branch, as a rule. Only to the default branch to track version numbers. But repositories where I *do* have an .hgtags file in develop, show it has only the initial commit version number tag in it, where the default branch .hgtags has all the tags I use for version numbers in default.
What would happen if I copy the .hgtags file I see in the default branch into my develop branch?
The reason I ask is that, because my develop branch lacks an .hgtags file, I always have to make sure that the last Push I do from my MacBook Pro is with a changeset in my develop branch. Otherwise when I do a Pull on my Mac Mini, I'm told that
hg cat' failed with code 1:'.hgtags: no such file in rev ...
Or should I just create a tag on my develop branch?
I checked out the tip of develop and then added a tag to the first develop changeset. So that tag now appears on the first develop changeset and in the left column of tags.
I then merged develop to default and resolved the conflict on .hgtags to keep "Mine". When I do this, however, the tag disappears on the first develop changeset and disappears from the left column of tags.
However, develop now has a .hgtags file with that single tag referencing the first develop changeset and I don't get the Pull problems I was having before. But I'm concerned about the tag no longer appearing in Sourcetree. So I'm reticent to actually do this with my production repository. I did all this on a test local/remote repository.
I'm tempted to create a new repository for this code and do it properly this time, so develop is created AFTER I create my first default tag.
