Yeah, sorry, I meant "the resulting repository."

Unfortunately I'm not sure it's as straightwforward as this, given that
we want developers to also be able to do builds locally.
We can deploy to the couple of places in the build service that would
need the update, but that will then be supporting something that will
break for developers until they update.
Maybe we want the transition plan to be "update your install of repo
when you find that it is broken," but I don't think that's very
satisfying. It will mainly affect the Android team though, so I'll let
them chime in.
