busy developing PBS, as you can probably tell ;)

if you enter the submodule and run `git fetch --tags` it should work. 

the problem here is that git submodules, once initialized/checked out, 
only pull. we sometimes need to push tags that are not (yet) part of the 
checked out branch in our mirrors (e.g., Ubuntu likes to tag in their 
force-pushed branch, and only merge once it passes QA, and sometimes it 
happens that a new release got cut in the meantime and that version only 
exists as a tag, but is never on the fast-forward master branch).

another alternative is to de-init the submodule altogether, or clone the 
whole repo from scratch (the latter works, so it's not the commits which 
are missing, but just git submodule strangeness preventing them from 
being found).
