[Openstack-devel] Tagging versions on your Git

Hi Gabriel,

My name is Thomas, and I'm one of the team members of the Debian 
openstack packaging team. I have found out that horizon currently 
depends on django_openstack_auth which you seem to be maintaining. (Is 
the URL: https://github.com/gabrielhurley/ the official one for the 
package btw?)

In the Debian openstack packaging team, we store all our packaging work 
in Git on alioth. Whenever possible, we do *not* store there the master 
branch, which is stored directly on github. Then our build process is 
based on the upstream tags. Eg, if our debian/changelog files contains 
2012.2, for example, then our system will use the upstream tag 2012.2 as 
a base for the orig.tar.xz file.

The problem is that with your package, there's no tags, which forces us 
to store your master branch on Alioth in order to add tags to it, with 
the risk that our tags aren't at the correct commit.

So, of course: could you tag your releases the same way it's done in 
other Openstack projects? :)

Please let the team know.
