Everything in the proposed log message made sense to me.

Shouldn't we stop saying "branches" here?

Likewise.  This is a lot more important than the one in
remote.<name>.prune documentation, as the next sentence "Tags are
not subject to ..." implies that they fall into the same category as
what gets pruned here, i.e. "remote-tracking branches" in the above
sentence, but nobody calls refs/tags/v1.0.0 a "remote-tracking
branch" even if it came from your 'origin'.

We should mention the most usual case tags are fetched, before
mentioning the case the unusual option "--tags" was used from the
command line or .tagopt configuration was used.  Namely, when the
tags are automatically followed.

Very good.

Using --tags is not similar to using refs/tags/*:refs/tags/* after
the previous patch already; "git fetch origin --tags" and "git fetch
origin refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*" are vastly different and that was
the whole point of the previous step.  And that "calling something
not so similar similar" needs to be fixed further here to clarify
that they are not similar in yet another way.

We should just lose "It is similar to using" from 10/15 and start
over, perhaps?  Add the first paragraph of the below in 10/15 and
add the rest in 11/15, or something.

        --tags::
                Request that all tags be fetched from the remote
                under the same name (i.e. `refs/tags/X` is created in
                our repository by copying their `refs/tags/X`), in
                addition to whatever is fetched by the same `git
                fetch` command without this option on the command
                line.
        +
        When `refs/tags/*` hierarchy from the remote is copied only
        because this option was given, they are not subject to be
        pruned when `--prune` option (or configuration variables
        like `fetch.prune` or `remote.<name>.prune`) is in effect.

That would make it clear that they are subject to pruning when --mirror
or an explicit refspec refs/tags/*:refs/tags/* is given, as tags are
not fetched "only because of --tags" in such cases.
