In this particular case that has nothing to do with it. It looks like I
accidentally pasted "_git-notes" into a random part of the file and
failed to notice.

By running the release version of zsh from a distribution, it should
hopefully be of at least approximately the same vintage as the rest
of the software. But more people running fresh builds gives us a chance
of finding errors of this sort before they hit a release.

Option updates in completions tend to be fairly error-prone and I've
been responsible for one or other error in most releases. I've not
updated _git for options since 2.24 so your next Ubuntu upgrade will
potentially give you a newer git than we complete for.
