The 1.5.* are weird, especially the doc/* ones, I am not sure what the
issue is. The weird one in svntags is because the tag has been
"recreated". We could just remove them a posteriori, but it bothers me a
bit not to know where they are coming from.

Yes, but the convertor manual advised against it, because svn has no
real notion of tags: the git tag and and the svn tag may not correpond
to the same tree, and it seems there are a lot of funky corner cases
(unlikely to happen in numpy, though).
One could just put the release tags, with a manual check ?

We don't lose much if we put the tags as git tags.

Indeed. I would confess that's one of the main reason to publish the
temporary repository, to make the transition that much more real :)
