If you install zsync (with `apt-get install zsync`), you can do:

zsync  http://people.canonical.com/~j-lallement/libreoffice/binrepo/bibisect-4.0.tar.lzma.zsync

which should do incremental updates.

Hmmm, with my copy doing a:

 git checkout master && git reset --hard HEAD

gives me a build of 5a8f5914c2077fe330d713a5d3a2be3b3f6a7e9a from 2013-05-07
and the about box says so too.
Checking out the oldest version with:

 git checkout 3e7462bd65e692bf0592d5b080b7716341b62a47 && git reset --hard HEAD

gives me a build of 1eddfce9894fd05315173744f495619189093dc7 from 2013-02-05
and the about box says so too.

 git log --pretty=oneline master|wc -l

looks fine here.
