I think this is an error in our process that should be fixed (newton is
going EOL soon).  While it'd be nice to fix I don't think it's worth the
effort as an EOL'd and now unbranched project.  We could create a
temporary branch from the commit and retag, but as a rule we should not
use the same tag twice (removing the pointer that existed and reusing it
to point to a diferent commit).
