It's probably useful to tag the release before checking out. I suppose
at the moment the tag would need to combine the tzcode and tzdata
version numbers, e.g. "tzcodeAAAAb_tzdataCCCCd". Or if you want the
combined tags to increase monotonically, something like
"tzYYYYz_codeAAAAb_dataCCCCd" where YYYYz is the maximum of "AAAAb" and
"CCCCd". You could have additional tags with just the tzcode version
and just the tzdata version.
