Importing existing app error with nested functions

I am following the guide to copy an app:

I am trying to import an existing app that was exported and pushed to a new github branch. The issue seems to be when importing nested functions which is supported by app services here:

First error: any triggers, http endpoints that reference nested function “object/getObjects.js” fail.
Second error: any nested functions do not import. Only functions that are in the “functions” folder in the github import will be imported, all nested functions fail.

Any work around for this bug?
