Junio C Hamano  committed fb60f34 Merge

Merge branch 'jc/request-pull-match-tagname' into maint

"git request-pull $url dev" when the tip of "dev" branch was tagged
with "ext4-for-linus" used the contents from the tag in the output
but still asked the "dev" branch to be pulled, not the tag.

* jc/request-pull-match-tagname:
request-pull: really favor a matching tag
