It should be; the tags in the git archive were automatically generated,
not converted fromt he CVS archive.

We told you before - you're behind a firewall and can't use rsync. Unless
you have an argument with your firewall admin and those are usually a
rather stuborn kind of character when it comes to that kind of changes :)

I certainly won't list each of the hundreds of individual tags on that
page; no point in that. ANyway, after the clone finished, do:
git-read-tree -m $(cat .git/refs/tags/linux-2.6.12)
git-checkout-index -f -a -u -q
Git developers didn't make that too easy; the git-checkout command doesn't
accept a tag as it's argument, so git-checkout linux-2.6.12 doesn't work.
