Viewing tagged files


So I’m new to Git/Git Hub etc, trying to see how I can view a a set of files that have been tagged.

One way to do it would be to revert back to the commit point that was tagged, but it seems you have to do that sequentially (ie do them all from newest to oldest back to the one you want) otherwise you get locked into file conflicts that you don’t seem to be able to resolve.

However you can retrospectively tag a commit, but as far as I can see there is no way in the Desktop to create a set of files for that tag. As far as I can see the only way to do it is to make sure the tag has been pushed to GitHub, then in GH you can view all your tags and there is an option to download a zip with all the files you need.

The Git documentation says there are side effects to checking out files from a tag, in that the repo is left in a detached head state. However I am presiming that downloading a zip based on the tag does not have this effect…?
