Fortunately, it looks like a fairly harmless discrepancy. But without
that one-to-one mapping between the git log "import" entries, and the
SRPM's built, there is always going to be a question of provenance for
source code.

This is another reason to want git tags tied to the actual SRPM's,
tagged and GPG signed by the procedure that builds SRPM's.  It looks
like the "make a log entry that starts with the word 'import'"
workflow just failed.
