This just has to happen once. If you don't do this you'll see merge errors. Next time you do a git pull it will work fine.
The reason is because there were 2 large jar files added to steal that shouldn't have been there. It was bloating the total clone size, even after being removed, because it was in the git history.
I removed commits from git history that contained those large files. The good side of this is any new clone is now only 20MB (it was over 40). The bad side is that pulling existing branches will break, because git tries to merge your current tree.
New clones are unaffected by this change, it only matters if you have steal currently cloned.
