Remove a remote Git branch and tags
Removing a branch from your remote repo is a little bit different from removing it locally. It’s all about the colon:
git push origin :heads/some-branch
git push origin :your_branch_name
removes some-branch from the remote repo (apparently git push origin :some-branch works as well).
This works for removing a tag as well:
git push origin :sometag
I found it in the git guides posting it here for *my* reference, and possibly other people as well.
