We have a very large number of developers that rely heavily on the git
mirrors and git-svn bridge. Breaking those developers and users isn't
really OK at this point, so it's actually very useful that we have some
build bots that exercise the git checkouts. Otherwise, we would miss issues
like this that are very real issues for other developers on the project.

Thanks for tracking it down and fixing it!
