I'm confused. The default argument is HEAD: what does it know about tag
git request-pull master korg
The bug is that if it can't find that commit at the remote end, it
still generates a valid-looking request (with a warning at the end),
where it guesses you're talking about the master branch.

Since I use a wrapper script now for your pull requests I can use sed to
for-linus = !check-commits && TAGNAME=`git symbolic-ref HEAD | cut -d/
-f3`-for-linus && git tag -f -u D1ADB8F1 $TAGNAME HEAD && git push korg tag
$TAGNAME && git request-pull master korg | sed
s,gitol...@ra.kernel.org:/pub,git://git.kernel.org/pub, && git log --stat
--reverse master..$TAGNAME | emails-from-log | grep -v 'rusty@rustcorp' | grep
-v 'sta...@kernel.org' | sed 's/^/Cc: /'
