This is just another “note to myself” thing… don’t expect too much magic here, but as you came here, you seem to have the same goal as I did:

I want to link to a specific file on github using its tag, so that it is a permanent link. exactly tells you how to create a permant link using a branch name or commit id. What they do not tell you is: You can also use a tag name.

The example given in above documentation would easily be written as:

to permanently link to the file of the v3.1.1 release.

Easy, right?
