I understand that some legacy systems are hard to maintain and are barely kept up to date.
When it comes to external tooling, we kind of just go with what seems reasonable. Perhaps we can document somewhere what the minimum required versions are. But it's hard to keep track and even harder to get users to actually pay attention to it, so I'm not sure if that effort is even worth it.
You pretty much only need git if you have dependencies that are unversioned or sources which don't offer dist files (e.g. private non-github git repositories). Because for everything else, we can just use zipfiles.

Was just surprised that my setup al the sudden broke.
Just hoped there was an easy fix, to get this supported.

If you can manage to get a Docker daemon running on your build server, you could solve a whole lot of your tooling issues as it is much easier to support different versions using different containers.
