It was (a sort of), but let me clarify again.
In my original pull request, I did git-request-pull for a signed tag,
but I apparently overlooked the warning.
Then the next test with git 1.7.12, I did it using no annotated/signed
tag, so git-request-pull didn't complain it. When I do it with a
signed tag, it starts warning.

Yeah I can understand that. But the problem is that a warning is
moderate so it can be so easily overlooked. It'd be user- (or
subsystem-maintainer-) friendly if this automatic conversion can be
