No, you don't do even that.

The name is "fixes". But you seem to match it with one of these:

> $ git ls-remote git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/evalenti/linux-soc-thermal fixes^{}
> a6d25f4c951b8b28f2eaec6f891ff834622532f2 refs/tags/omap-for-v3.10-rc1/fixes^{}
> 77319669af37a1cfc844b801e83343b37e3c7e13 refs/tags/omap/fixes^{}

*NEITHER* of which is a tag named "fixes". One is named
"omap-for-v3.10-rc1/fixes" and the other is a tag named "omap/fixes".

Notice?

What git will do is

(a) Never *ever* match against a partial name.

git matches against this list of patterns:

"%.*s",
"refs/%.*s",
"refs/tags/%.*s",
"refs/heads/%.*s",
"refs/remotes/%.*s",
"refs/remotes/%.*s/HEAD",

so "fixes" can match "refs/heads/fixes" and "refs/tags/fixes" (or
a *remote* called "fixes"), but it can never match against
"refs/tags/omap/fixes".

(b) If you have an actual ambiguous name, git will indeed pick the
first from that list (so tags before branches, but also HEAD before a
tag called HEAD), but it will generally also warn:

warning: refname 'xyz' is ambiguous.

So using "ls-remote" the way you are actually gives *way* more matches
than it should. The ls-remote pattern is really just a grep pattern,
not an actual ref lookup.

So if you want to look up tag 'x', you really need to match on
'refs/tags/x' exactly.

But that does explain why you thought it matched.

Anyway, the _real_ merge for that pull request has now happened, and
is commit aa0c38cf39de.
