  huh ... well, that raises the question, if tla has been unbuildable
for that long (possibly for other distros), what is the value in
continuing to support git-archimport?

  https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-archimport.html

i don't really care one way or the other, but perhaps git-archimport
should be broken out as a "non-core" component of git. related post
