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.
