I agree with James, a lot of work is pending and lot needs to be done.

However aslo-v3 does support syncing activity when a release is  *explicitly
*published by the developer.
Is this something similar to what you are looking for?
Here is a demo of the same https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNount59G0Y.

We can try to pull info on each release but there is no event for Tags yet.
There are tags for push events and pull requests as well.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
