Git tip - git describe

Apparently git comes with batteries included. If you want to track the 'distance' from a certain tag all you have to do it use the command git describe:

[3] oz123@debian:~/software/pwman3  [master]  $ git describe 

The output is easy to understand:

    <tag>-<N-Commits>-<hash of the latest commit>

To see this output you first have to annotate or sign you tags, so check the man page of git-tag.
