Subject Re: Github tagging, was Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Joshua 6.1 RC#2

Yeah but the problem there harks back to SVN-land where you'd push a tag to
run the builds and tests from for VOTE acceptance. Of course a tag in Git
is just a hash,  so you could just quote a hash instead, but still,
personally I think its easier for users to have the tag in place to grab
and build against when signing off code.
