All tags are private by default.

We actually *only* fetch tags if somebody explicitly asks for them
(--tags), or when fetching from a named remote (and even then it will
only fetch tags that point to objects you fetched by default iirc -
you have to mark the remote specially to get *all* tags).

But if you do the normal "git pull git://"
- which is how things happen as a result of a pull request - you won't
get tags at all - you have to ask for them by name or use "--tags" to
get them all.
