I am trying to create D7 release. Cloned project. Added new branch 7.x-1.x. Pushed but forgot to "include tags". Redid it and included tags this time.

Going to project page -> Add Release it says i have no valid branches or tags.

i get this from command line:

C:\Drupal-GiT\D7\autosave>git push origin master:7.x-1.x
! [rejected] master -> 7.x-1.x (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to ''
To prevent you from losing history, non-fast-forward updates were rejected
Merge the remote changes (e.g. 'git pull') before pushing again. See the
'Note about fast-forwards' section of 'git push --help' for details.
