I guess it is so because git tags, even annotated, don't get pushed from your local repo to remote one unless you do git push --mirror or reconfigure which of your local refs are to be pushed. At least it's what I had with my github repositories.
So the quick&dirty solution is that Klacke or other maintainer would do push --mirror once from his local repository where the tags are present.
PS. Hans, sorry for posting this email twice, I meant it to go to the list.
the public repo does not contain any tag for the yaws 1.81 release. Is
that on purpose?
