Ideally yes. The issue that I'm seeing is that the last tag on the
openafs-stable-1_6_x branch was not 1.6.1 final; the
openafs-stable-1_6_1 tag was placed on a child branch of the main
1_6_x branch. So I'm finding it hard to dig the value out with git

$ git checkout openafs-stable-1_6_x
Switched to branch 'openafs-stable-1_6_x'

$ ./build-tools/git-version .
