They are missing in core for all repos but bootstrap mostly. The cause
is likely the whitespace stuff Norert mentions down the thread. I tryes
to automagically recreate them using some "git bisect" scripting
(mostly because I wanted to use bisect so bad I tried to train myself a
bit with it) but my approach failed.

They ended up in the original repos but not in core. Manually finding
the corresponding commit is likely the best way to recreate them. Or
has somebody a good idea(*) for a script? After all ~6tags*15repos are
roundabout 100 tags to manually identify.



(*) One would be: when we have tags for libreoffice- and
libreoffice- to do a
git rev-list \
    $CURRENTCOMMIT ^libreoffice- --pretty="format:%at" \
    |grep -v ^commit
for CURRENTCOMMIT in `git rev-list libreoffice-
^libreoffice-` and find the one that diffes the least from the
output for the old repos.
