You can delete the tag and retag. You're theoretically not supposed to do
this in Git, but given that you just made the mistake, I wouldn't worry
too much about it. No one will have a tree based on that tag already.
I think you need to do something like:
git push origin :refs/tags/<tag>
git push origin --tags
to delete the tag and recreate it in the Alioth repository.
