Argh, thanks for noticing. Apologies for not doing a more thorough check.

tags were converted correctly, I just wasn't aware a git push --tags was
required.

The date issues seem to be a bug in hg2git fast-import. All the affected
commits have an author delimited with quotation marks, stripping those
before import seems to work. I have correctly converted repos locally,
however fedorahosted prevents git commits that will lose history, so I
can't just blow away the repo in place.

I've filed a ticket with fedora infrastructure to lend me a hand:
