netbsd-3-1-base doesn't exist.  -base is used for the tag where pre-release
branches (like netbsd-3, netbsd-4) are branched (i.e., netbsd-3-base was the
starting point for NetBSD-3.0_BETA, and the branch netbsd-3 was created
there).  netbsd-3-1 is branched at (not before) the 3.1 release, thus at
netbsd-3-1-RELEASE, not netbsd-3-1-base (which doesn't exist).
