previous email below.

Just a reminder that we are NOT going to touch any Stream 9 source-git
repos, this is only about the Stream 8 source-git repos that are created
from unpacked archives. Please let us know if any of your workflows gets
disrupted, our aim is to make this transparent and seamless.
