I've spun up my own buildbot setup and one of every 68 builds (2 x all 
targets) fails because of issues with cloning. That may 
change depending on overall load, I have no extensive statistics. We 
could also add a "retry" command to the buildbot setup.

 From my understanding Git works over HTTPS and can therefore be 
distributed over a CDN rather than our main git instance.

src-git telephony


src-git telephony

No need for any sunsets.

I tried that but at least GitHub has a tighter IP limit for cloning.
