Git tags and SVN tags are completely different beasts (git tag is
simply a "second name" attached to revision, while on svn the tag
could be arbitrary different). There is no way to automate the process
- in general svn tag might not correspond (by contents) to any other
revision in the repository.
The only way to somehow emulate svn tags on git is to create a
separate branch on each tag, however, this is very redundant provided
that we're already having a release branch.
