Oh, indeed "git tag -d release/..." worked fine.  I thought git would 
have then wanted to push something to the remote repository.  I thought 
wrong and should read more the Manual :-)  Issue solved, thanks!

As for tags for INN 1.x we only have 1.5.1 (like in SVN).

We discussed it in 2015.  The initial CVS repository was made with 1.5.1 
and then an import of 1.8-current so we do not have source history for 
intermediate versions like 1.5.1sec2, 1.6b3 and 1.7.x:

So we can't do more for tagging 1.x releases.
Well let's keep it as-is, and available old tarballs in if 
that's fine for everyone.

OK, thanks for your feedback.
I'll add the previous releases little by little :)
