FYI, the e783e SHA1 must be a local change. We have been using
fcb52ccc996 since April 2008. What did change recently though was that
the git installation on infradead got updated recently, and gitweb >=
1.6.6-rc1 uses a slightly different snapshot tarball format than before
(it appends the 7 first chars of SHA1 to directory name).

Me too - It would be very good to see a stable release with ubi support.
