Comment (by boklm):

 The value of `git_hash` has to be a tag if `tag_gpg_id` is set to 1.
 Otherwise it can be anything that is understood by git, including a
 branch. If you specify a branch, you don't need to specify a remotename,
 as all branches from the `git_url` are created as local branches (with
 `git fetch origin +refs/heads/*:refs/heads/*`). So it is not a good idea
 to create local branches in git_clones/* as they can be removed if the
 remote repository has a branch with the same name. If you want to use
 local branches, it is better to create them in a separate repository, and
 change `git_url` to `file:///path` to point to your repository.
