Building on that, I have now also created and pushed the desc/* tags for this.
This is how:

Find the commit that increases the version number, in this case 204a9c2e for
1.4.0git and 40df14a7 for 1.3.0pre. Then:

git tag -m "Mark 1.4.0git" desc/1.4.0git 204a9c2e
git push origin tag desc/1.4.0git

git tag -m "Mark 1.3.0pre" desc/1.3.0pre 40df14a7
git push origin tag desc/1.3.0pr

The purpose of this is the following:

$ git-describe

Which indicates I'm at 0ff4449, which is one commit ahead of the commit tagged
desc/1.4.0git . This is used by Makefile.common to get a version string.
