I don't understand this, can you give an example of what absolute paths make

Looking at the wiki pages and scripts we need to make relative paths work for
everyone, I think it's clear that absolute paths would be better because CI
wouldn't need any scripts anymore and users would need no instructions to make
cloning forks work.
