Git tags dissapear when doing a push then clone?
We have a repository with multiple tags. Each tag represents a version of the software. We are pushing the repository to a remote server.
When we do a fresh clone off the remote server, the tags are no longer there. How do you ensure other developers or clients can check out specific versions of software off the remote server?

git push --tags or
git push remote tag-name
Alternate solution to the one given by Brian Campbell would be to configure remote to push all refs, or push all branches and tags:
[remote "repository"] url = email@example.com:user/repo.git push = +refs/heads/*:refs/heads/* push = +refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*
Note that, since git 1.8.3 (April 22d, 2013), a:
git push --follow-tags
would push any new commits as well as all annotated tags referenced by pushed commits.
