Note that it effectively mirrors what we did with Subversion. Every time we
cut a new tag for the vote, we'd delete and recreate the tags/X.Y.Z
directory. So the only way to find what we were voting for, without using
the mailing list, was to look back through the history of that path.
Admittedly, we'd loose the ability to automatically detect when a release
branch was "cut" for the release by looking at Git. But the mailing list
 has that information. So is it really a big deal? The mailing list is a
permanent feature of the project, and just as essential as Git.
