Git semver release tags #562
Tags/releases are useful for downstream package maintainers (in Debian and other distributions) to export source tarballs, automatically track new releases and to declare dependencies between packages. Read more in the Debian Upstream Guide.
Versioning provides additional benefits to encourage vendoring of a particular (e.g. latest stable) release contrary to random unreleased snapshots.
Please consider tagging releases.
