Flag incompatible_remove_native_git_repository

We're moving away from native git_repository rules to the Starlark versions of git_repository. Those can be loaded via load("@bazel_tools//tools/build_defs/repo:git.bzl", "git_repository", "new_git_repository") and provide the same functionality.

By this change we no longer have to embedd jgit into bazel, thus making the bazel binary smaller and with less dependencies to maintain. Instead, we assume that users of git repositories have a git binary installed on their host system anyway. By calling git directly all global git configurations are honored as well.

The flag was already flipped by a55714c; this issue is for documentation purpose only.

Incompatible changes:

  - the --experimental_no_dotd_scanning_with_modules command line
    argument is not supported anymore.
  - The --prune_cpp_modules command line option is not supported
    anymore.
  - the --experimental_prune_cpp_input_discovery command line option
    is not supported anymore.

New features:

  - Added support for Android NDK r18.

Important changes:

  - The 'default' parameter of attr.output and attr.output_list is
    removed. This is controlled by
    --incompatible_no_output_attr_default
  - A number of platform-related Starlark APIs which were previously
    marked "experimental" are now disabled by default, and may be
    enabled via --experimental_platforms_api
  - Make legacy-test-support ("legacy_test-<api-level>") from
    android_sdk_repository neverlink. The legacy test support
    libraries shouldn't be built into test binaries. To make them
    available at runtime, developers should declare them via
    uses-library:
    https://developer.android.com/training/testing/set-up-project#andr
    oid-test-base
  - query remote server Capabilities (per REAPI v2)
  - CppRules: All cc_toolchains depended on from
    cc_toolchain_suite.toolchains are now analyzed when not using
    platforms in order to select the right cc_toolchain.
  - removed obsolete --explicit_jre_deps flag.
  - Incompatible flag
    --incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api was
    flipped.
  - Improve error messaging when unsupport proguard options are
    specified at the library level.
  - Incompatible flag
    --incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api was
    flipped.
  - Incompatible flag
    --incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api was
    flipped.
  - The --incompatible_disable_late_bound_option_defaults flag has
    been flipped (#6384)
  - Incompatible flag
    --incompatible_disable_legacy_flags_cc_toolchain_api was flipped
    (#6434)
  - Fixed issue where ctx.resolve_command created conflicting
    intermediate files when resolve_command was called multiple times
    within the same rule invocation with a long command attribute.
  - Incompatible flag
    --incompatible_disable_cc_configuration_make_variables was
    flipped (#6381)
  - If the --javabase flag is unset, it Bazel locates a JDK using
    the JAVA_HOME environment variable and searching the PATH. If no
    JDK is found --javabase will be empty, and builds targeting Java
    will not
    be supported. Previously Bazel would fall back to using the
    embedded
    JDK as a --javabase, but this is no longer default behaviour. A
    JDK should
    be explicitly installed instead to enable Java development
  - Bazel will now shut down when idle for 5 minutes and the system
    is low on RAM (linux only).
  - CROSSTOOL file is now read from the package of cc_toolchain, not
    from
    the package of cc_toolchain_suite. This is not expected to break
    anybody since
    cc_toolchain_suite and cc_toolchain are commonly in the same
    package.
  - All overrides of Starlark's ctx.new_file function are now
    deprecated.
      Try the `--incompatible_new_actions_api` flag to ensure your
    code is forward-compatible.
  - --incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto
    was flipped.
  - Introduce --(no)shutdown_on_low_sys_mem startup flag to toggle
    idle low-memory shutdown, disabled by default.
  - --incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto
    was flipped.
  - --incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto
    was flipped.
  - CppRules: All cc_toolchains depended on from
    cc_toolchain_suite.toolchains are now analyzed when not using
    platforms in order to select the right cc_toolchain.
  - The function `attr.license` is deprecated and will be removed.
      It can be disabled now with `--incompatible_no_attr_license`.
  - `range()` function now returns a lazy value
    (`--incompatible_range_type` is now set by default).
  - The code coverage report now includes the actual paths to header
    files instead of the ugly,
    Bazel generated, virtual includes path.
  - `--incompatible_disallow_conflicting_providers` has been switched
    to true
  - Add new flag `--incompatible_disable_systool_from_configration` to
    disable loading the systool from CppConfiguration.
  - Add new flag `--incompatible_disable_sysroot_from_configuration`
    to
    disable loading the systool from CppConfiguration.
  - Sorting remote Platform properties for remote execution. May
    affect cache keys!
  - Use different server log files per Bazel server process; java.log
    is
    now a symlink to the latest log.
