Yes (manually on the server, depending on the exact configuration we set
up for what pushes are allowed), but deleting before conversion speeds up
the process of verifying conversion correctness at branch tips and makes
different conversions more comparable.
These are the current commented tag deletions from my most recent merge
request which sorts them into logical groups. I suggest we consider which
of these we wish to delete, and also suggest that the answer should be all
except maybe the vendor tags. Note that some tags may be covered in more
than one group, and the tag deletions by regexp include tags in
subdirectories that match that regexp.
