request-pull: explicitly ask tags/$name to be pulled
When asking for a tag to be pulled, disambiguate by leaving tags/ prefix in front of the name of the tag. E.g. ... in the git repository at: git:// tags/v1.2.3 for you to fetch changes up to 123456... This way, older versions of "git pull" can be used to respond to such a request more easily, as "git pull $URL v1.2.3" did not DWIM to fetch v1.2.3 tag in older versions. Also this makes it clearer for humans that the pull request is made for a tag and he should anticipate a signed one. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
