Thanks for explaining this. I've had the same problem with two
new packages the last days. After controlling the cvs log for the
package with the help of my sponsor it was clear that the tag was
already set. "make build" worked fine afterwards.
The imported package had a fc6-tag and the problem occured on
fc6-branch (not fc5).

Agreed. So this confusion would be avoided for new packagers (at least
for me). Especially because in "Extras/Contributors" [1] is said that
all new branches must be tagged.
