Is it possible to reference a tag in an Issue Comment? Like you can reference issues and commits, I want to reference a tag.

The Writer implementation is available since tag v0.0.1.

Yes, by referring to the commit SHA that added that tag.

Look up the tag via the Branches/Tags dropdown list or in the Releases (since on GitHub releases are tied to tags).

When you load up the tag, you can grab the commit SHA from the top of the file list, where it says,

latest commit XXX {clipboard-icon}

And then reference it as you normally would any other SHA.
