... and only add them to the tags you make for said milestones. This is a good
compromise between having a complete history and not having too many
uninteresting changes in the repository.

Note that generally the result of compiling things (or any kind of generated
files) should not be under version control because you can always check out
the version and regenerate them. This way of thinking has one minor error
though and that is that you can't always retrieve the whole version including
the environment that was used to build it, e.g. because you upgraded a
compiler or changed the OS. In those cases, adding the generated files when
making a release is a good idea.
