How to configure EGit to push/fetch tags

By default EGit won't push/pull the created tags to/from remote repository. If you want (like me) to do this by default, here's how:
  1. Right click on your target Eclipse project
  2. Go to Team -> Remote -> Configure fetch from upstream...

  3. The fetch configuration window will appear

  4. Click Advanced...

  5. Add all tags specs

  6. Click Finish and you will return to previous window which will now have tags added.

  7. Now click Save and Fetch. This will fetch/pull and also save this configuration for all future fecthes/pulls.
The process is exaclty the same for pushing, just select Configure Push to Upstream... in step 1 instead of Configure Fetch from Upstream...
