In Oracle Linux 6, the git clone command does not work by specifying a tag:
git clone --branch <TAG> <REMOTE-GIT-REPOSITORY-URL>
Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/site_refresh_package/.git/
Server supports multi_ack_detailed
Server supports side-band-64k
Server supports ofs-delta
want xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (refs/tags/<TAG>)
POST git-upload-pack (gzip 13378 to 6739 bytes)
warning: Remote branch <TAG> not found in upstream origin, using HEAD instead
It can be confirmed by the command:
git ls-remote --heads
that there in no branch named <TAG>, which is expected.
Original expectation was that git clone --branch <TAG> would clone the git repository files committed for the specified <TAG>
