[tbb-dev] get-tb-version broken

Hi Nicolas,

Sorry for missing this!

For the user manual, we do a check out of
https://gitweb.torproject.org/builders/tor-browser-bundle.git/, and then
our configure script does the following[1]:


TOR_BROWSER_VERSION=$(eval $(GIT_DIR=${tor_browser_bundle_dir}/.git

During configure, this results in the following error[2]:
Could not find TORBROWSER version from tags. Does your git repo have tags?

According to Jenkins, up until May 21st, this worked as anticipated.

Thanks, I hope you had a nice weekend!
