Ah, OK. I must admit I also use the english words in day-to-day (german) 
conversations. However, in case of tags, when spoken, you have the ability to 
pronounce tag differently (long "a" when you mean day, short "a" for a git 
tag), which is not the case in a written conversation. How about using "neues 
Tag" instead of "neuer Tag"?
