Thanks Mark,

That may just be the problem.

Norm.

Subject: Re: removing a tag from the repository

I had problems as well with tags not getting removed. Turned out I was
using filename wildcards, not Python regular expression patterns. Check
your patterns to ensure that you are doing things like this:

--exclude="some_tag_.*"

rather than

--exclude="some_tag_*"

When I fixed that I went from 500+ tags to around 20.
