Auto_tag defaults to latest unless git tag is semver

As far as I can tell, the auto_tag feature silently ignores semver parsing failure and returns latest instead.

From the docs

Please note that auto-tagging is intentionally simple and opinionated. We are not accepting pull requests at this time to further customize the logic

From Issue #237

I’m not a big fan of changing the auto tag behavior, as brad said it’s pretty simple intentionally.

Though I acknowledge all that would someone be so kind as to clarify why the current implementation behaves like this?

Of course, it causes problems to us because our staging environment depends on (ie. pulls) the latest images so whenever a not semver tag hits the repository, auto_tag eventually moves the latest tag to another arbitrary image in the repository.

IMHO it would be better to make the build fail or use the provided tag as is.
