I knew this would happen someday...

I think it's time to make the access check hook, check the tag names,
for this I think we should change to use 'samba-' instead of 'release-'
for our tags... I'll propose that in a different mail.

release-4-0-0alpha15 was also missing, I've merge both with
git merge -s ours release-4-0-0alpha15
git merge -s ours release-4-0-0alpha16
