is there some documentation out there somewhere that still recommends to
use bootstrap repos?

it seems we have somebody unfortunate enough to try to build the master
branch from bootstrap repos once a week; would it be possible to do
something to prevent that?

e.g. create a master-backup that points at the current master commit,
then let master point to an empty source tree; that way people should
notice something's wrong when they try... any opinions from git experts?
