This is actually not a cranky related item, though it used in cranking.
We have tried hard to make the internal update-version not be cranky
dependant.  I would also point out (as it is not obvious) that the
kernel-versions respository this builds to obtain the necessary commit
contents is a bare repo and not in a consumable form; it is not intended
to be seen.  It is very literally a performance cache, and as such it
should be in .cache.  I will move it there.  To consume the real
repository you would checkout the master from launchpad in the normal
way via a simple git clone.
