to ensure GPL compliance and that we can always reproduce we have said for 
awhile now that tags will eventually be made immutable 

I had missed that Mike Bonnet had added it,  if it had been caught it would 
have been removed sooner.

I would love someone to help here.   adding checks to makefile.common  check 
that all patches are commited and that source is updated and commited.  AFAIK 
these are the most common reasons people force a tag and the closest thing to 
a valid reason for forcing a tag.

when we tag we should be sure that the build is fine and going to build. thats 
why we have targets like mockbuild   other targets to help test things are 
always welcome.
