+--exclude <pattern>::
+ Do not consider tags matching the given `glob(7)` pattern, excluding
+ the "refs/tags/" prefix. This can be used to narrow the tag space and
+ find only tags matching some meaningful criteria. If given multiple
+ times, a list of patterns will be accumulated and tags matching any
+ of the patterns will be excluded. When combined with --match a tag will
+ be considered when it matches at least one --match pattern and does not
+ match any of the --exclude patterns. Use `--no-exclude` to clear and
+ reset the list of patterns.
