In fact not, the tags are automatically replaced upon pull. I've been
using such a crappy workflow for some time in the past, sharing human
errors with coworkers... Git is pretty tolerant to this. It's just
that it's terribly confusing because you can then have two people with
the same tag name pointing to different commit IDs, I really hate this,
it only works when all users are in the same office and you shout
"sorry I messed up, I'm pushing the tag again".

It also has the benefit of always reporting the same version for all
users including those only downloading the -rc patch.
