I noticed that...  Doesn't that defeat the point of tags???  Branches
are used for merging things. Tags should be set in stone - a snapshot
at a specific point in time. Now Lazarus developers do not distinguish
between tags and branches.  :-(

How long before a Lazarus tag is not merged to any more?? This strange
usage of tags makes any mirroring near impossible (or a lot more
work).  I still think merging to a tag is wrong though.  Maybe I'll
just use the base revision number the tag was created on and be done
with it.
