Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Yocto Project 3.3.1 (hardknott-25.0.1) is Released

After discussing it we've gone ahead and deleted the hardknott-25.0.0 tag then added hardknott-3.3, and hardknott-3.3.1 tags. 

From now on any release before 3.3 will have the poky version number tags and from the 3.3 release forward we will use branchname-yocto-version tags.

Well, those are the ones we have traditionally been using. The benefit I see
with them are that they contain the release name. For me as a user, it is much
easier to see and refer to "hardknott-something.1" than "yocto-3.3.1". I.e.,
I don't have a relation to the "25.0" or "3.3" part, but to the release name.
We typically only talk about "hardknott" or "the second hardknott release".

That said, a tag such as "yocto-hardknott-3.3.1" or "hardknott-3.3.1" would
fulfill the same properties as "hardknott-25.0.1", though the one without
the "yocto-" prefix is more suitable when tab completing, e.g.,
`git log hardknott-3.3..hardknott-3.3.1`, so that is the one I would use if
it was up to me. ;)
