MacPorts mirrors that tarball and it ensures that our build is reproducible.[1]  I could be wrong but I don’t think a subtree would be included in the tarball.  If you are going to test this, please check this out.  Other packagers may also be affected.

Hi Craig

Thanks for the info. I believe it will include the subtree in the 
tarball. I will make sure to test it to make sure it is included.
I see the way to get a tarball is using a URL like this 
https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/archive/devel/ffmpeg-resync.tar.gz .
