I think you're confused about what a tag is in git.  Basically it is
just an alias for a specific state of the repository.  When you do a
'git pull', it will update all the tags for you.  I think want you're
getting at is wanting a specific branch.  The DragonFly_RELEASE_2_4
branch will get you the latest 2.4 code.
