It's up to the maintainer, so it varies. The best thing to do is to ask
the maintainer what they'd prefer.

From my experience, Catalin is usually happy to add tags, so I suspect
he'd be happy to do so for this patch (assuming he's happy to pick it
up). I'll leave it for him to say either way.

Thanks,
