It's out of date because no one who knows how to keep it updated has 
taken the necessary steps for that to happen.

Are there other problems with it which can only be fixed by starting 

The point I am trying to convey is that performing some one-off import 
operation has been done before, repeatedly.  What's going to be 
different this time that causes the clone to stay up to date?

Indeed.  Is this something that's addressed by the git command in your 
earlier email?

I have no idea where they came from or how they differ.
