Hi Dan,

Yes, a lot of what you're talking about (and discovering, I guess) was discussed in two email threads yesterday, on the semediawiki-user list. It would indeed be nice if the remaining untagged extensions were tagged, and if SB started to have tagging as well. It wouldn't make a huge impact, though, since SB is mostly used by people who don't have Git (and, previously, SVN) on their systems.

I've just noticed these releases:

Seems those releases can't be tagged in the git repo because they
again rely on checking out HEAD code of various other extensions... It
would be great if those extensions could be tagged, then SB could also
be tagged.
