Release Changeset Number Should Support Tags


Right now, releases are linked to the corresponding source code versions via a changeset id (TFS) or commit hash (Mercurial, Git).

However, since my releases are also recorded in the version control (via a label in TFS or tags in Mercurial and git) I would prefer if I could associate releases via this symbolic name instead. The UI should also offer a drop down with the existing tags to choose from.

Even better: when creating a new release named "" and a corresponding tag with the same name exists, the UI should auto select this tag.

In my mind this would stream line this aspect quite a bit.

I prefer Git tags to be highlighted in the source history.
