SubjectRe: git pull through http / git
From
Date
Keep in mind Kernel.org uses caching on gitweb and thus gitweb itself is
not necessarily accurate / up to date. git.kernel.org also round-robins
across 4 machines which may be in various states of update, so your
fundamentally looking at a number of different possible points that may
be slightly out of sync with each other.
