    Ok, I had a look at the issue it seems that Bitbucket is unable to read your tag refs/tags/v2.6.16.31-rc1.

    This ref is an annotated tag and looks like:

    $ git cat-file tag 20c93a0fba73095196eeaa1e57a1f774518b55ff
    object afaa018cefb6af63befef1df7d8febaae904434f
    type commit
    tag v2.6.16.31-rc1
    tagger Adrian Bunk <bunk@stusta.de> 1162716505 +0100

    This causing our git library to fail, claiming that this is a malformed tag object, because it doesn't contain the message section.

    It's worth noting that Git itself seems to have no trouble reading the tag:

    $ git show --oneline 20c93a0fba73095196eeaa1e57a1f774518b55ff
    tag v2.6.16.31-rc1

    According to the git-mktag man page, the description section is indeed optional and so it seems that you have uncovered a bug in our Git library!

    While we work to get this fixed, you should be able to simply just delete that tag from your Bitbucket repo (you can keep it locally so that you can push it back up once we get this fixed).

    Also not that this bug should only affect the website and so I expect you to still be able to push and pull.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Yes, it seems like that it only affect the website, my local copy seems ok with push and pull. I mainly just the git itself for the work, so I am fine with it. I think I will wait for the next sync with upstream (next week) to test the push/pull again.

    Hoping that this issue can be fixed then the website can be shown off.
