Subject Re: Removing TAGS

This really isn't 'our' history though. Most of the tags Sebastien
referred to came in on January 8th[1]. When we moved to the ASF, we
removed the vast majority of tags and branches as they simply didn't
have a lot of context here, and increased the already-bewildering
confusion most people experienced.
