Yes you can.  I use git tags for my luarocks releases.  Looks like the 
luarocks rockspec format documentation is missing info about the 
"source.branch" setting.

source = {
  url = "git://",
  branch = "v1.1",

The tarball links are only for non-luarocks packaging/install (i.e. for Linux 
distro packaging).
