I'm not sure. If you imported all the tags from all your subtrees repos, you could easily end up with duplicate tags from different repos. They could be namespaced, but there is no concept of namespace in git-subtree. That even assumes that you can tag a subtree (I've not tried). >> To follow a project in a subdirectory I would use git-subtree add >> selecting a branch, not a tag, from the other repo.
