Backdating a release to the tag date

I’ve imported a repository into github, which has some tags for past releases. I then manually created releases for each of the tags.

So far, so good. However - the releases are dated to right now (well, over the past few hours) - while the tags have appropriate dates in the past.

I would like to make the release dated according to the tag. Is that possible somehow?

Hi @eyalroz!

Unfortunately there’s no way to edit the date of releases once they’re on GitHub, sorry!

We’re always working to improve GitHub, and we consider every suggestion we receive, so perhaps you’d like to submit a feature request through our official product feedback form so that our product team can see you would value being able to edit the dates of releases?
