Actually it looks like this was a configuration issue which broke
Phabricator's HTTP git hosting. I believe I have fixed this but now
seem to be fighting our CDN which I'll need help from the infrastructure
guys for.

Regardless, you should be able to clone the repo via ssh.

This code won't strictly speaking be in gipeda, right? Rather, it would
merely be a bit more logic in the build script, no?

Often it will be. However, I have in the past often opened "chains" of
Differentials where the HEAD of one is the base commit of the next.
Naturally in this case the base commit will not be in master.
