Excellent. Andy, thank you for your reply as always.

Is there any best practice to handle hundreds of labels?

FWIW, I'd avoid this and just label your continuous builds with the
revision number you used. You can get a "view" of that revision number
at any time anyway without resorting to tags.


Opinions aside, and not that I've done this, but you might consider
something like dropping a "ContinuousIntegration" folder inside your
"tags" folder to keep the visual clutter down. And based on Hyrum's
reply to this thread, you might have a second level folder (perhaps
based on year and/or month) to keep the number of subfolders down if you
are creating lots and lots of builds. If it's nightly, I doubt I'd
worry, but if you're doing a build for every single trunk commit, and if
your developers typically work out of the trunk, then I'd do this.
