Should be git://git.debian.org/users/kibi/pkg-xorg/mesa.git instead.

I've noticed hundreds of files that are in git but not in the 7.10
tarball, including weird things like Windows .exe files. We could
'git rm' them (Julien did that for many files e.g. in commit f6a8b969),
getting rid of the "unrepresentable changes to source" error, but
they'll come back when we switch to 7.11. Maybe it would be good to
write a script to delete those files from the Debian branches.
Are there any files which are actually both in git and in the tarball,
but with different content?

Most of the files are probably just non-existent in the tarball, but why
did configure.ac change? The version in git matches the one in the 7.10
