Error: The generated source distribution’s identity is not correct

When dds attempts to automatically generate a source distribution, especially when generating from a remote that was acquired using a catalog listing, dds expects the generated source distribution to have a matching package identity to match what was intended.

This can happen if a catalog listing’s package version does not match the source of the remote acquisition method. For example, if using git to clone a repository, the git-ref used to clone must match the package version of the listing. If the git-ref is a branch, it is possible that additional changes were pushed into the branch that changed the package version, thus invalidating the package. 1

For this reason, it is highly recommended to use Git tags to refer to remote packages instead of branches.
