Good, good.

That's possible. IIRC, Joren said that he had a problem with his git
tree being stuck in a weird state. Joren -- did you ever figured out
what went wrong with your bibisect repo, and have you managed to
repair it?

I wonder if it would be possible to wipe out local changes in the git
repo just using zsync commands?  (I'm not so familiar with the way
that zsync works)

Bjoern might have some insight here, but it might just be gremlins in
the repo. It's unfortunate that the repo is such a large re-download
if/when it breaks.
