Somehow I have branch that was supposed to be a tag. Not sure how it ever 
became a branch, but now that I have discovered it I am wondering, how do I 
convert the branch into a tag?

Since the name will be the same for both the branch and the tag, I assume I 
can just checkout the branch and tag it.

So now I am thinking I have to delete the branch, but remember its ref id, 
checkout the ref id, and then tag it. Is that right? Any other (easier) way?
