On the fetch side, something like this in the config file (assuming
"origin" remote here) probably would do

[remote "origin"]
	fetch = +refs/tags/*:refs/tags/origin/*
	tagOpt = --no-tags

I'm not so sure about the push side.

PS. it would be nice if "git remote" has --no-shared-tags option or
something to do this, assuming that it works perfectly well.
