Oooh, I'm sorry, that's my fault; I did screw it up.  I usually do

  git request-pull origin/master git:// $COMMIT > msg.txt
  git tag -s $TAG $COMMIT
  git push pci $TAG
  git request-pull origin/master git:// $TAG > msg.txt

so I can look over the updates one last time before tagging, but I got
distracted in the middle and I think I forgot to do the second
request-pull after pushing the tag.

Thanks for compensating.
