 From what I can see with httpd, the issue is the same(?) - GitHub 
interprets a tag as a release at the time of tagging, not the time of 
releasing (github "released" 2.4.38 21 days ago, ASF released it 19 days 
ago). Short of going in and removing the tag, there's little we can do, 
it's just a bad hardcoded feature that GitHub has.
