Comment (by dustin):

 OK, so it looks like it's possible that the rev being built is only
 reachable from a branch, and not from a tag, in which case fetch --tags
 doesn't fetch the relevant commit.  I see the comments on the
 stackoverflow thread, too.

 However, I think that the use of '+master' fixes this.  At least, it does
 for me.  In a repository that was somewhat behind upstream, I ran

 dustin at euclid ~/code/amanda/t/amanda [master] $ git fetch --tags zmanda

 From http://github.com/zmanda/amanda
  * branch            master     -> FETCH_HEAD
 dustin at euclid ~/code/amanda/t/amanda [master] $ git reset --hard dcf864
 HEAD is now at dcf8647 * perl/Amanda/Taper/Scribe.pm: Correcly make label
 with meta and barcode
 where dcf864 is the current rev of master at zmanda/amanda, and was a
 commit that wasn't in my repo before that time.  That rev is also not
 referenced by any tags in my repo or zmanda/amanda.  So there's something
 about this problem that I'm still missing here - any idea how to explain
 what I'm seeing?
