Qt Creator Git Tricks
Does anyone have any cool git tricks within Qt Creator?
Things like handy .gitignore adds or even explain how and when you decide to tag within your development process.
It's nice git is built in, let's bring it to the next level!

The general tendency is to tag whenever you create a new release. When you create a new release, is entirely up to you. You may even get away with not tagging at all. However, it usually makes sense to tag any version that you are reasonably happy with, and you think will be useful and usable for your users. That can even mean tagging alphas, betas and release candidates as well as releases.
I've definitely seen that. I always try not to over-tag, but I expect a better feel for it after getting involved in more community projects.
Another cool git trick: Git Bundles a trick I picked up from the Pro Git Book Blog:http://progit.org/2010/03/10/bundles.html
Neat way to share when you're in a pinch.
It doesn’t relate to Qt Creator but you might find "this git branching model":http://nvie.com/posts/a-successful-git-branching-model/ quite useful. Take a look at "this":https://github.com/nvie/gitflow as well.
Awesome links DSav!
I agree. Very helpful.

That is the model we use for development of the site you're on right now, we have a large print of the model on the wall right behind where I sit :)
It's a small world... ;)
