I have always been using the tags list:
and here are only immutable snapsots where I select the latest not set
as RCx.
Is that a bad practice?

Do you mean that say fixes_1_8 contains these tags:
and the top of the fixes_1_8 branch has the very latest released

If I already now have 1_8_4 as a tag and would like to switch it over
to the fixes branch, how is that done?
