Is there a way to open a pull request from a tag instead of a branch?

We're using a git flow style process.

Pull requests for feature branches to our develop branch are working great.

When we want to move to the qa branch, a pull request from the develop branch works great as long as we want to merge the HEAD of the develop branch.

We tag the development branch with each merge to allow deployment on a developer testing environment while development continues.  Supposed that tag is ok'd to be moved into formal QA but in the meantime we've had several additional merges.  We know the tag ID but it obviously isn't HEAD any more.

We are using an external CI pipelines tool to build and deploy the results of the merges.

I don't see a way to open a pull request that would merge a tag of a branch into another branch.  Do I need to clean my glasses?

No, it not possible to select a specific tag as the source for your pull request. What you could do is create a branch off of that tag and use that "tag branch" as your source.

Interesting solution, I like it.  Thanks.
