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.
