[pulseaudio-discuss] git repo still contains old svn tags

When playing with the git repo, I see it still contains some heads with
the name "tags" e.g. refs/heads/tags/release-0.9.9

One tool I have here tries to interpret refs/heads/tags (probably badly)
and bails. Now this code should be more self tolerant, but having
recently done some git-svn conversions, I wonder if we shouldn't fix up
the legacy tag branches anyway?

e.g. if we run this code, it'll sort out the old "tags":

git for-each-ref --format='%(refname)' refs/heads/tags | cut -d / -f 4 |
grep ^release- | sed 's/^release-//' | while read ref; do git tag
"v$ref" "refs/heads/tags/release-$ref"; git branch -D
"tags/release-$ref"; done

git gc

I've tested this before and after an rsync of the git repo and it seems
to solve the problem.

I just search for references via "grep -r tags/" This should find the
refs of the tags... afer running the script above the
refs/heads/tags/release-* branches are instead converted to tags.

Does this make sense?
