Very true. It also does not water plants.

True again and still irrelevant. GitHub does not import lightweight tags
when merging PRs because those tags are not a part of a PR branch and
are not supposed to be imported by git design.

GitHub certainly supports release tagging. The PR merging bot is not
(and probably should not be) responsible for releases, including release

FWIW, in March 2018 email to Amos, I have already tried to explain the
design approach behind git tagging and offered a specific short-term
tagging solution. I did not get a response.
