Question regarding this commit:


Here, a port tfmigrate was updated from 0.3.2 to 0.3.3 and changed to allow it to fetch dependencies at build time.

What transpired between 0.3.2 and 0.3.3 that made it necessary to allow the port to do its own fetching again? This seems to happen to various go ports with some frequency. What can we do to improve the situation so that this does not become necessary so often?
