Hi @romani,

It is currently not possible to disable this warning and we currently do not have any plans to include this feature. Please post this suggestion to Suggest New Features.

Not having the full git history available when scanning will break quite some features like PR analysis and automatic assignment of issues to the creator of those issues, so we want to be sure that users are aware of this limitation.
