When I run git clean -xfd, git deletes my tags file. I have the tag file listed in gitignore, but how do I tell git not to remove the tags file.

In our current setup, we have automatic tagging in git of all successful release builds. This makes it easy to go back to stable points in history and compare functionality, check when bugs were introduced etc.

To help with this process further, it would be useful to be able to use git bisect, but as these are just a sequence of tags, not commits on a branch, git bisect will not work as is.

Is there any tooling for automatically recreating a branch from a sequence of tags, where each generated commit is the calculated delta between each two neighboring tags?
