Hm, I'm worried that this is mainly going to result in spamming the server
with git-failure reports.  From what I've seen, those usually don't go
away by themselves; they need manual action to resolve, and that's often
not promptly forthcoming.

If the git failure persists it will be spamming the server anyway. It's
when it stops failing and then doesn't see a git advance and hence
doesn't clear the error that this is trying to clear up.
