CircleCI keeps missing branches/tags


#1

It seems that occasionally, maybe once per day, CircleCI will completely fail to see a branch (or more importantly a new tag).

What this means is that sometimes, feature branches aren’t getting built / tags aren’t being built. This is hugely impactful on our Continuous Delivery platform.

What’s also infuriating is that I can’t even manually trigger a branch or tag build to recover the situation.

Nevermind I think I’ve found the reason.

I think this is quite confusing for somebody migrating from 1.0, but also a new user. Most CI systems will automatically build tags.

Thanks i’ve given a note to the Docs team!
