git-buildpackage's posttag hook
20th February 2009

As of version 0.4.47 git-buildpackage exports these environment variables to a called posttag hook:

This allows you to write posttag hooks that push out only the changes that correspond to the created tag. For a simple example see the GBP Manual. Using such a hook makes team maintenance a lot easier since you can't forget to push out the commits and tags for a newly uploaded package while making sure you don't push out any other changes.
