I got the error message,
Unable to checkout '207a56d25bde2a84f6c5a09c2da6bb9a1e54705b' in submodule path 'site-lisp/tidy'
See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2155887/git-submodule-head, looks 207a56d is not published to https://github.com/emacsmirror/tidy.git yet.

I tried git "submodule sync;git submodule update" but didn't work.

Evidently there was a problem with the emacsmirror repo at some point; revision 207a56d was from 2010, and was definitely present in the repo -- it added the file mon-doc-help-tidy.el. It looks like that revision has been forcibly removed from the repo recently, presumably as part of a cleanup by Jonas, the emacsmirror maintainer.
