Summary: Use git SHAs + tags for local deps
Currently, when working with local dependencies, I cannot use a git tag to refer to a specific revision of a project.
:local/root only respects the current version of the working tree, which can make using local deps under active development a bit trickier.
Support for SHAs and tags for local projects which are specified via file-based Git URLs would allow projects consuming local deps to specify the state of those projects unambiguously.
I previously asked a version of this question on the Clojurians slack and was referred here by Alex Miller.
