let's stop adding the v prefix on tags

it promotes practices that are different from semver
although most of the stuff would work, others can copy this approach and repeat it.

Of course it could be worst:

not so correct
https://github.com/zendframework/zf2/releases
https://github.com/laravel/framework/releases

correct imo
https://github.com/Ocramius/ProxyManager/releases

it is never late https://github.com/gushphp/gush/releases but I guess it could potentially break all other automation around it. I agree then.

Semver does not forbid using a v prefix (actually, the semver spec itself prefixes its versions: https://github.com/mojombo/semver/tags). Semver is about the version number, not the tag name

And the v prefix is nice for the autocompletion of git branches: it avoids getting all tags in the autocompletion when switching to the 2.3 branch (which would make the autocompletion totally unusable)
