You should *tell* "git request-pull" what you're actually requesting to pull.

The old "let's guess based on the commit at the top of your tree" may
have worked for you (because you only ever had one matching thing),
but it did not work in general.

So the new "git request-pull" does not guess. If you want to request a
tag to be pulled, you name it.  Because if you don't name it, it now
defaults to HEAD (like all other git log commands) rather than
guessing. So please write it as

   git request-pull master git://neil.brown.name/md md/3.15-fixes

I guess the man-page should be made more explicit about this too.
