When I do the tags/nfs-for-3.4-1, it still gives me that ..BRANCH.NOT.VERIFIED.. crap in the pull message.
Furthermore, it fails to actually push the tag to my upstream repository, meaning that I'm still prone to the 'Linus tried to pull, and the commit wasn't there" syndrome.

Could we perhaps set up a best practices webpage/wiki for this sort of thing with a pointer to that webpage in Documentations/SubmittingPatches? That way maintainers would have a source of information for which versions of 'git' that they need to use in order to provide you with the information that you want.

Cheers
Trond
