Ah, sorry I forgot or did not realize you were waiting on that.

The next opportunity I had for tagging the release checkouts was 4.2
which got tagged with SQUID_4_2 accordingly for PR 272.

As you can see that tag still does not exist in the master repository.

I am officially the maintainer, yes.

Alex "proposal" was to teach me about the git command line option(s) to
push tags to the repository. Which has worked fine .. for the repo I was
using. It has not helped with the public github one you are using.

The Anubis bot gateways all changes to the master repository - so to me
it seems like a reasonable place to be handling the issue of some PR
needing to be tagged as release. Especially since they have scripted
content that can be checked for.
 I'd rather have Anubis do the tagging than pulling in random tags from
any contributors repos.
