Absolutely, that would be awesome!

Yes indeed, as the daily bibisect repo is updated daily it is missing the
'oldest' and 'latest' tags, which I usually manually created befoe uploading. We might changed that though.

@Jean-Baptiste: Can we maybe do a:

 git tag -f oldest 3e7462bd65e692bf0592d5b080b7716341b62a47 && git tag -f latest master

before pushing to the binrepo?
