whether the github repo or from
doesn't matter (github is a readonly mirror)

But git now is overly picky (or otherwise put: at the time the
repository was converted from cvs to svn to mercurial to git the tools
were lax and such errors did pass undetected, and of course after all
those years it is too late to fix).

You can kickstart the repo by using a git bundle:
that will include the problematic commits and from there on you can
use regular pulls/fetch from github/

Or of course you can just selectively download the schemas and put
them into your sourcedir
