  +1 I think at this point it is the best way.

The rationale too, is that sometimes we may commit a fix, and the CVE
about it gets assigned later. With tags we can always add that extra
information. So let's try to be consistent and always use git tags
in the future. Those tags should be PGP signed (as you did :)

  Thanks for doing the history work :-)
