Huh, i hadn't noticed that older tags had been removed in the canonical
upstream git repo, i agree that's unusual and rather strange.

The repository where i record debian packaging changes includes a full
copy of the upstream repo (at least as far as what's been packaged) and
that naturally includes the older tags as well:

You're always welcome to pull the tags from there (the upstream takgs
should all be cryptographically signed by Jason, so you can verify
authenticity even if the network source is different).
