Yeah, the git import doesn't delete branches, and in the case where a
branch or tag gets overwritten it's backed up as branch_rxxx or
tag_rxxx.  I'm leaving it up to the module owners to purge tags like
that that aren't important anymore.  Unlike svn tags and branches, a
deleted tag of branch doesn't leave any trace in history, so just
deleting the branch will suffice.

That's pretty easy, I reimported empathy with this, have a look.  What
about commits with both From: and Signed-off-by:, which one takes
precedence?  I'd assume From:, right?
