You're right and as Emery wrote: The second warning will disappear
with the next release (or with the current master branch).
Nevertheless, I'm curious why you see the first warning as git is used
like follows in repos/base/src/core/

  git -C $(GENODE_ROOT_DIR) describe --dirty=" <local changes>" 2> /dev/null

On my machine, this line effectivle prevents warnings from git for any
GENODE_ROOT_DIR, for example
