Grmbl, git is really complicated.

How do I switch to that tag?

The only command that I tried that actually did something was:

git fetch origin tags/v4.6.0-tp1

but then what?

`git checkout v4.6.0-tp1` or `git checkout tags/v4.6.0-tp1` doesn't work, 
although git checkout --help says the argument can be a tag.
`git checkout -b v4.6.0-tp1 v4.6.0-tp1` doesn't work either....

Why doesn't this work like git branch? (e.g. there's "git branch -r", but
no way to list remote tags?)
