Merge branch 'sp/fetch-optim'
* sp/fetch-optim: Teach git-fetch to exploit server side automatic tag following Teach fetch-pack/upload-pack about --include-tag git-pack-objects: Automatically pack annotated tags if object was packed Teach git-fetch to grab a tag at the same time as a commit Make git-fetch follow tags we already have objects for sooner Teach upload-pack to log the received need lines to an fd Free the path_lists used to find non-local tags in git-fetch Allow builtin-fetch's find_non_local_tags to append onto a list Ensure tail pointer gets setup correctly when we fetch HEAD only Remove unnecessary delaying of free_refs(ref_map) in builtin-fetch Remove unused variable in builtin-fetch find_non_local_tags
