That would mean I can't do kernel releases while on ferry rides, which
is probably a good thing in the end :)

What causes you to upgrade the version of git on the server?  Are you
relying on packages for a distro, or is this "hand installed" by
yourself?  As long as I stay in lock-step with your updates, all should
be fine.

Oh, maybe we can report back to the user, the version of git that is
being used on the server, if the checksums don't match, so that I know
to at least see if my version is different from yours?
