Documentation: do not mention .git/refs/* directories
It is an implementation detail that a new tag is created by adding a file in the .git/refs/tags directory. The only thing the user needs to know is that a "git tag" creates a ref in the refs/tags namespace, and without "-f", it does not overwrite an existing tag. Inspired by a report from 乙酸鋰 <ch3cooli@gmail.com>; I think I caught all the existing mention in Documentation/ directory in the tip of 1.7.9.X maintenance track, but we may have added new ones since then. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
