Hi Stephan,

Yes, I know that the the transfer to Git threw off a lot in terms of consistent tagging - that's the main part of the reason why there have been only two Semantic Bundle releases since the changeover happened a year ago.

In any case, anything you can do to improve the state of tagging and compatibility is definitely appreciated!

Yeah, that was one of the requirements to the developers - tag release
versions of their extensions in git.

Ouch, that hurt. :D
That's only because there was no release of SFI since the switch to git.
Have a look at the old SVN repo and you will find tags galore.

Agreed, they will not help.

Ok, I'd still like to give it a try. If it does not work, we are not
worse off. If it does work, me pestering the devs might actually get
them to tag their extensions consistently and think about and state
