git-svn: fix fetch with deleted tag
Currently git-svn assumes that two tags created from the same revision will have the same repo url, so it uses a ref to the tag without checking that its url matches the current url. This causes issues when fetching an svn repo where a tag was created, deleted, and then recreated under the following circumstances: - Both tags were copied from the same revision. - Both tags had the same name. - Both tags had different repository paths. - [Optional] Both tags have a file with the same name but different content. When all four conditions are met, a checksum mismatch error occurs because the content of two files with the same path differs (see t/ Checksum mismatch: ChangeLog 065854.... expected: ce771b.... got: 9563fd.... When only the first three conditions are met, no error occurs but the tag in git matches the first (deleted) tag instead of the last (most recent) tag (see t/ The fix is to verify that the repo url for the ref matches the current url. If the urls do not match, then a "tail" is grown on the tag name by appending a dash and rechecking the new ref's repo url until either a matching repo url is found or a new tag is created.
