I believe the reason it starts working at that commit is the annotated 
tag that points to it.  Previous to that tag, Oracle was using simple 
lightweight tags (which is git tag's default option).  With older 
versions of git, "git describe" only stopped at annotated tags, not 
lightweight tags.

So Oracle folks are probably just using newer versions of git than you.
