qemu 0.12 is based on 0.5.1-stable, appears to be an untagged commit
qemu 0.13 is based on 17d3e46511, doesn't appear to be a part of a 
branch or a tag?

git-wise, tags are more important than branches.  You can always 
retrofit a branch to a tag (and you can always retrofit a tag to a 
commit hash).  For the qemu git repositories, neither matter so much 
since the commit is recorded in git; but the distro people really like 
nice stable tags with lots of digits and dots in them.
