The autotag functionality of the tag plugin committed (when doing its first commit) all changes that have been staged (in Git). I suggest it should be restricted to the specific file only. --tschwinge

This is not specific to the tag plugin. Same can happen if you rename a file, or post a comment, or remove a file via web interface. All of these use rcs_commit_staged.

This is why ikiwiki is supposed to have a checkout of the repository that it uses for its own purposes, and nobody else should mess with. There are various notes about that being needed here and there; you're free to not give ikiwiki its own repo, but you have to be aware that it can fight with you if you're making changes to the same repo. done --Joey

Ack, that is reasonable. (And it's only been a very minor problem during manual testing.) --tschwinge
