Thanks, the -f did it, but I've "-f'ed" myself a lot with git, so avoid it.

My ~/.ssh/config has "host" names for orgs and systems, but some programs
(git?/lftp?/sftp?/?) get confused if you use those in other connection strings:
"what do you mean '[hidden email]@[hidden email]'", but your git
command also worked without complaints.

Cheers, thanks!
I will wait until finished changing and reviews before pushing tags in future.

Not at this time. Would bloat up your tiny script! ;^>

I usually define my own repo schemes in the global (user) Git config:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
[url "ssh://sourceware.org/git/"]
        pushInsteadOf = cygwin:
[url "ssh://[hidden email]"]
        pushInsteadOf = git://cygwin.com
[url "git://cygwin.com/git/cygwin-packages"]
        InsteadOf = cygpack:
[url "ssh://[hidden email]/git/cygwin-packages"]
        pushInsteadOf = cygpack:
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

which then enables me to address the repo  like this (each package is a
submodule in an umbrella repository:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
[submodule "perl"]
        url = cygpack:/perl
        active = true
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

THis also works on the command line, so if I ever want to check out
something quickly it is a lot easier to type.  I never configure the
playground as a local branch, I've posted how to push to that branch and
remove it if and when you need it earlier.

> Is there any way to move tags to a later commit once pushed?

A tag is just a special commit, so as with all things Git: no, unless
you can rewrite history, i.e. force-push.  Just do not tag things you
haven't published.

Yes, that database is now large enough that filtering would be helpful.
Probably a case of SHTDI, PTC… :-)
