[openstack-dev] [all][release] "why do I have new tags for old versions?"

The release team is doing some housekeeping work in openstack/releases
and in the course of that work we modified the deliverable files
for some very old series. Including all the way back to Austin.

Because those files changed, the tag-releases job ran. And because,
apparently, some of the very very old tags had never been imported
into git, they were added today based on the SHAs we had established
when we first imported the history into the repository. So, if you
notice very old tags like "2010.1" showing up in places, that's why.

Our shiny and modern build machinery doesn't work with the state
of those repos from that long ago, so aside from the tags we don't
think anything else was rebuilt (no build artifacts on tarballs.o.o
were changed, for example).
