So now we have the git repository.  All hail the git repository.  Thanks,
Jim!  But we have a couple of lingering issues from the CVS conversion.

There was no cvs/<branch> head that corresponded to the last CVS commit.
I made one by hand, called cvs/master.

The head master-UNNAMED-BRANCH existed for some reason, not under cvs/.
It was 7ce88cbdc45a8fb68c5cd1b69d95dee9b11913ee.
I removed it.  Is this some abandoned wrong-converted history?
Its log entry matches that for d585b66fa4d11059948f466c9080a6826932358d.
'git describe' can find nothing for either of these commits, which is odd.
d585b66fa4d11059948f466c9080a6826932358d is in the history of

We have no git tags at all.  What happened to our cvs/* migrated tags?
That is a bunch of lost information, including the exact points in history 
of various past releases, Fedora builds, etc.  What gives?
