I don't see the issue? These would be relevant to the files in those packages. So if I did git log ./foo I would not see all those logs so it wouldn't be an issue.

No no no! - this is not acceptable. We have centralized servers for AMBER. If you want to use external providers fine but it is not acceptable to require other AMBER developers to go there. This issue needs to be fixed before it gets out of hand and I am prepared to make an executive decision on this.
