If the answer is: "please use a system with a modern version of git", that is fair 😄 . But I don't think there was an intention to drop support for git version 1? And/or it might be worth considering updating docs and release notes if so?
Edit: A colleague's idea: if git version 1 isn't supported, an explicit version check+fail would be a much nicer user experience.
Per #26746 (comment), I do not plan to test against (or add workarounds for) Git versions older than 2.17.6 due to known CVEs and lack of documentation.
You are welcome to contribute a CL for compatibility with older versions, but any CL for compatibility should include a reference to the command documentation for the version in question.
