Thanks for reminding me about that. I've once again created the tag by hand, though a bit more elegantly this time.

Running git fsck --unreachable in the mirrored repo (the one on my server that bridges git svn to github) turned up the missing tag reference, so I know that it's getting into git. I think the breakdown was in creating the tag, and deleting the branch without checking. Right now that works by creating a tag and deleting the branch, but a safer way would be to just move the reference from refs/heads to refs/tags. I'll try that.
