This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to use Ctags with Emacs.

I need to configure Emacs to search for a TAGS (generated via ctags) recursively, like so:

  1. search in the directory of the current file / view
  2. go up in the directory hierarchy until a TAGS file is seen or until the .git directory is seen (signaling the root of the project)

I found a hint on tags-table-list, but it doesn't seem to work, plus I need a function, not a static list and I wouldn't know how to do that.
