CI can't clone pmaports fork: error reading section header 7 days ago

From Csepp to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Hi all!

I ran into the following error while trying to cross compile some custom
Alpine package using a fork of pmaports:

```
fatal: error reading section header 'shallow-info'
```

Here is one of the CI jobs:
https://builds.sr.ht/~raingloom/job/815216

The repo is not private, but I added my git.sr.ht key just in case,
unsurprisingly it did not fix the issue.

That's not what alt text is. It's for screen readers. A bunch of people
are way into ASCII art so alt text is needed. They are image
descriptions.

I recommend the following instead:
