Looks like the transition is not completed properly yet.
Does it work for master? I.e. do you recon it is more a matter of backporting 
patches or of missing adjustments due to the changes?

Very unlikely. There is no way one could backport a patch if one cannot verify 
that it at least builds. Some teams additionally deploy a continuous 
integration system to build development and stable branch and run automated 

In this case the application developers are most likely waiting for the people 
doing the SVN to GIT migration to have completed their work.

Should I make an inquiry on their development list?
