I've finally found some time for it and fixed the tags in the main repository.
I was able to run the update and it ran ok,  I w2as also able to clone the repo
from the official branch and see that they are OK in gitx. If anyone
has problems
with the tags, please let me know.

If you are talking about gitweb, you can see it (for example: Makefile
for linux 2.6.17) here:


I've also installed gitweb on a copy of biopython repo on my server
(not a permanent URL, not updated from trunk);a=tree;hb=HEAD

It shows the tags, but (as usually with git), the tags are only shown
for the files which were affected by the particular commit marked with
the tag. So this behavior is consistent with kernel.org and github.
