It doesn't compile with our vala anymore and there have been multiple vala related patches and also some refactoring iirc. It was easier to use git than try to backport the patches.
Especially after taking a look at their bug tracker [1] and git repo (hardly any recent commits) I didn't feel like getting in touch with upstream would help a lot. Maybe I'll contact them next week end.
