"git describe --tags --always" will return a bare commit id if there is no previous tag.  This is pretty common to have when you're working on a new package that hasn't been released yet:

$ git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/repo/.git/
$ touch foo
$ git add foo
$ git commit -m 'Initial commit'
[master (root-commit) cd7dd74] Initial commit
 0 files changed
 create mode 100644 foo
$ git describe --tags --always
$ git tag v1.0
$ git describe --tags --always
