I figured that out, finally, by mistake. The sequence of operations that
works is tag (AKA branch), update (on the branch), add, commit.
Doing an update when you know nothing has been added yet is
counterintuitive to me. I did it by mistake originally, and then went
back and analyzed why it worked.
Thanks for the confirmation.
