[platform-ui-dev] "INITIAL" tag renamed to "initial-2"...

Hi everyone,

I'm sure those of you that have been fetching with EGit (on Windows) have encountered this bug before.

We had two tags with the same name, "initial" and "INITIAL", in our eclipse.platform.ui repository. Due to the case-insensitivity nature of the Windows file system, Git gets "confused" and likes to "download" both of these tags every single time you fetch. Note that these two tags are several years old so they should not affect your daily work with the eclipse.platform.ui Git repository.

After talking with Dani, we have decided to rename the second one from "INITIAL" to "initial-2". I have pushed the tag creation and deletion (not technically a rename) to Eclipse.org so you should get "initial-2" as a new tag the next time you fetch.

Thank you for your attention.
