[rfc][icedtea-web] Ready to commit extensions for Bug 3684

New contributor here – I’ve been working with Jiri Vanek via https://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3684 to push some contributions to the IcedTea-Web project.  We’ve added the following functionality:

- Exception sites list similar to Java Control Panel, viewer panel as well
- Ability to enable/disable every field in IcedTeaWeb Panel, just like Java Control Panel
- Pull proxy information from PAC and Windows Registry
- Exception match on hash 

Jiri has asked me to submit these in logically separate commits, and I am ready to do so.  I'm a little confused on how minor contributions like these need to be tagged in Mercurial, however.   I am working off of the 1.7.2 (07c6f970a4c9) revision and I have committed, but I'm hesitant to push anything without fully understanding how the community prefers tagging to work.

Could someone give me a quick overview to the preferred methodology, or point me to a resource that explains it?  I checked https://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/ReleasingIcedTea but that seems more for full releases than code contributions.

Any info appreciated!
