Switch to another GIT tag

How do I check out version version/tag 1.1.4 of the rspec bundle?

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles/
git clone git://github.com/rspec/rspec-tmbundle.git RSpec.tmbundle
osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

Clone the repository as normal:

git clone git://github.com/rspec/rspec-tmbundle.git RSpec.tmbundle

Then checkout the tag you want like so:

git checkout tags/1.1.4

This will checkout out the tag in a 'detached HEAD' state. In this state, "you can look around, make experimental changes and commit them, and [discard those commits] without impacting any branches by performing another checkout".

To retain any changes made, move them to a new branch:

git checkout -b 1.1.4-jspooner

You can get back to the master branch by using:

git checkout master

Note, as was mentioned in the first revision of this answer, there is another way to checkout a tag:

git checkout 1.1.4

But as was mentioned in a comment, if you have a branch by that same name, this will result in git warning you that the refname is ambiguous and checking out the branch by default:

warning: refname 'test' is ambiguous.
Switched to branch '1.1.4'

The shorthand can be safely used if the repository does not share names between branches and tags.
