This is fixed already in f793582 (doc: git-htmldocs.googlecode.com is no more, 2016-06-22), which is in git v2.9.1. Debian testing/unstable are at v2.9.3, but Jessie is still on v2.1.4. I don't know the policy for cherry-picking patches to Debian stable releases. I think only security fixes are done immediately, but "important" fixes get rolled into stable updates every few months. I don't know that this is "important", but it does point to information that grew stale outside of the release's control, and as a trivial documentation-only change, it shouldn't cause a regression. +cc Jonathan, who works on git packaging for Debian. -Peff
