Well, beside forgetting to push the tagged commit before pushing the tag, it appears I also forgot to edit some parts of the commit message... I can only apologize, a lot, for this, so sorry.
Since the tag is pushed, I guess this is it, I'm not fancying push forcing tags.

Best (apologetic) regards,
