Git and tags

Alton Blom

Hi All,

Just going through another round of edits and I came across the following criterion.

'It is RECOMMENDED that git users apply tags to releases'.

I'm not familiar with version control software,  is there a way that this criterion is made more generic so that it could apply to other software, or is this a git specific recommendation.

If it's a only relevant to git is there a reason to be this specific in the criteria.
