You shouldn't think about as a tag. It's a branch (it isn't 
inside the "branch" directory without reason) and thus fixes from trunk 
are applied there if the need arises.
If you look at Lazarus' "tag" directory you'll see that the tags don't 
contain many fixes after the tagging and even then they seem to be small 
ones to get the release stable and worth to be released.
