Perhaps, but the release note is not a place to repeat what the
documentation already teaches---it primarily is to enumerate the
changed areas, to highlight the things users may want to look up in the
documentation, to give them a starting point.

You would do something like this, I would think:

        git fetch $there 'refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*'
