FYI, the rsync command to get the tags blows away .git/branches/origin,
so on the next "git pull", git will tell you "Where do you want to
fetch from today?".

In the mean time, better make it two separate rsync commands (sorry for
the long lines):

rsync -a --delete --verbose --stats --progress \
  rsync:// \

rsync -a --delete --verbose --stats --progress \
  rsync:// \
