Yeah, that's very much by design - lightweight tags are very
comvenient for local temporary stuff where you don't want signing etc
(think automated test infrastructure, or just local reminders).

Yeah, I think git request-pull should at least *warn* about the tag
not being the same object locally as in the remote you're asking me to
pull.

Are you sure you didn't get a warning, and just missed it? But adding
Junio and the Git list just as a possible heads-up for this in case
git request-pull really only compares the object the tag points to,
rather than the SHA1 of the tag itself.
