Git 1.7.9 has an annoying bug in that it uses absolute paths when initializing
submodules. In the best case, this breaks git within the submodule when the
full checkout is transferred to another host. In the worst case, it leads to
incorrect git behavior within the submodule.

This affects parsoid round-trip testing. We currently use rsync to distribute
the code from the central checkout, which provokes this issue. Clients are
checking the git revision of the submodule and exit if it has changed. They
also report the revision to the round-trip test server. In the worst case this
means that test results are attributed to the wrong revision.

This was fixed in git 1.7.10, March 2012:
