Subject: [boost] [git] Releases tags

Is there a global policy regarding the way how/when/by whoom tags are
created for releases and release candidates?

In each submodule there are tags corresponding to the releases (e.g.
boost-1.54.0-beta1, boost-1.55.0, etc.). Are they created somehow globally?
When a tag is created for the main module is it automatically a tag of the
submodule? Or must tags be created manually/separately in each submodule?
Of course not counting some private tags.
If the former is true, I'm guessing that private tags should have the names
reserved for the releases tags?
If the latter is true, are they created by the maintenance team or should
the authors handle it themselves?
