The vendor tag is cruft.  Normally there is only one vendor branch
(1.1.1) and the vendor tag just refers to it.  Pick some string that
you'll never forget and use that.  `avendor' is fine.

The release tags *are* important.  Pick something that describes
the distribution you are importing, e.g. `psutils_1_16' or `Mesa_3_4'.
When you import a new release, use an appropriate successor tag,
e.g. `psutils_1_17'.  If you made local changes, you will need
these release tags to merge them into the new release.  See the

If you are importing *your* sources, make up some release tag.
You will probably never use import again so the release tag isn't
too important.  Just pretend.
