I don't think versioning the tags file is considered good practice, I have always seen it git-ignored, since the user (or usually a plugin, pathoged does it for me) is in charge of building it.
Versioning puts the burden of keeping it up to date upstream, which is usually not required, and a frail assumption.
For example right now I have this diff in the repo, I personally would git rm --cached it.

diff --git i/doc/tags w/doc/tags
index f9b3a74..545fc5f 100644

Agreed - this was an oversight rather than a conscious decision. I'll remove this in the next push. Thanks for the heads up!
