OK. I think I'm about to go back into lurk mode on this
subject, but not quite yet. And I'm not being querulous
for the sake of querulousness, if that's a word. :-)

So in this case, all 7 projects would be in releaseXYZ.

So in this case, all 7 projects would ALSO be in releaseXYZ.

I don't see any difference in the tag name, releaseXYZ, only
in the way you have your hierarchy organized.
