The pipeline needs access to various kernel repositories. To reduce network traffic and increase resilience against temporary network problems, those repositories are mirrored into an S3 bucket by the git-cache-updater. Kernel repositories are not cloned directly. Instead, the cache version is downloaded and updated via git fetch. Internal repositories are cloned directly, but the cached version is used as a fallback in case anything goes wrong during cloning.
