Hi Reuben,

Thanks for the suggestion, but I deliberately chose to
upload the tarball(s) before pushing the tag and commits.
Why?  Because the latter step is the only one that is
decisive, and very unlikely to be reverted.  If I upload
something I later (in say, the following 10-20 minutes
as I wait for it to appear on the site) want to retract
or replace, I can do that.  However, once I push a commit
I feel I cannot reasonably revert that.

Why would you like to reverse them?
