Answering my own question after digging a bit more, now I know that
a99d903 comes from the 'private' branch in peff/git/ repository
hosted at GitHub [*1*].  The branch builds on 'next' by merging many
private branches, and 'jk/non-pgp-signatures' branch has that commit.

    a99d903f2 t7004: fix mistaken tag name
    - 468165c1d Git 2.17

It seems to me that Peff did the t7004 change as the earliest
preliminary step of the series, but it caused confusion when it was
not sent as part of the series by mistake.  Judging from the shape
of the topic, I do not think this topic has any other hidden
dependencies as it builds directly on top of v2.17.0.

For those who are reading and reviewing from the sideline, I've
attached that missing 0.9/8 patch at the end of this message.


*1* I do not know if it deserves to be called a bug, but it
    certainly is an anomaly GitHub exhibits that a99d903f can be
    viewed at https://github.com/git/git/commit/a99d903f..., as if
    it is part of the official git/git history, when it only exists
    in a fork of that repository.  I can understand why it happens
    but it certainly is unexpected.

Subject: [PATCH 0.9/8] t7004: fix mistaken tag name

We have a series of tests which create signed tags with
various properties, but one test accidentally verifies a tag
from much earlier in the series.
