ELPA doesn't use tags for releases, the version is determined by
checking the "Version" attribute in the package header (in your case it
is currently set to 0.0.1).  When this line is changed, a new release
will be triggered.

I notice that you have .texi and .info files in your repository.  IIUC
these are generated from the .org file, right?  If that is so, you can
get rid of the generated files and instead let the ELPA build server
prepare these from the .org file for you.

It would be preferable, if you could track the files you wish not to
distribute in the package in a .elpaignore file within your repository,
that we don't need to update nongnu.git for any change.
