Right. Avoiding header tag collisions is in everybodys best interests
really, so here's what I'm going to do:
I'm not going to pull in current rpm5.org tags for 220.127.116.11. Simply because
I don't want to manually update all those tags to the python bindings to
avoid more bugs like this on things we don't even support otherwise:
Post 18.104.22.168 when (not if, barring any unforeseen complications) we start
using automatic python types for them, that wont be a problem, and we'll
start syncing with rpm5.org tags to allow at least querying "foreign"
packages if nothing else.
We're not adding new tags of our own to 22.214.171.124, so all we really need at
the moment is the promise from both sides to commit to avoiding tag
collisions. See above for mine.
