I blame 'git remote update origin' for not pulling all tags that are not
also reachable from a current branch; and since origin/branch-1.11 is no
longer maintained, I no longer have a branch spec to pull in the new
label by default.  I had to do an explicit 'git fetch --tags origin' to
get it, but now I see the label again.

It really IS a good practice to keep a branch associated with all public
long-lived tags; it doesn't waste any additional space in the git repo,
and makes fetches pick up those tags with less effort.
