rDLDGd45f073 fixed an issue where some tag names have been passed as bytes to an underlying API expecting text.
This means those database fields are doubly-encoded.
We need to fix that.
update release set name=convert_from(decode(substring(release.name from 3), 'hex'), 'utf-8') where release.name LIKE '\\x%';
This has now been done.
This task has been migrated to GitLab.
