Jesse Yowell created an issue

Upgrading GIT to 2.16.2 will allow 2 advantages (there are others - see release notes): 1. Uploading or fetching a large # of tags in a commit is substantially quicker. 2. 2.x and later support the --shallow-since CLONE option:

$ git clone https://my-repo --shallow-since="2016-10-01"
Cloning into 'myrepo'...
fatal: Server does not support --shallow-since
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

    It seems like --shallow-since as well as --shallow-exclude are still not supported. Since Git 2.11.0 looks like it was released in Nov 2016, it seems like this documentation should get updated so we'd know to not expect features released in the last few years. Thanks!

    Hi from Prague, big thx to Atlassian team for all top quality services you are providing, but please, can you upgrade GIT to version newer then Nov 2016? This version is called "outdated" now Thx

    Is this ever going to be done? I see the title of this issue being updated once in a while according to the latest git version, but what about actually picking it up?
