I would be really happy when these git things are put into a tarball and
uploaded to ftp.archlinux.org. For AUR these git/svn/cvs checkout
packages are nice, but I dislike them for core and/or extra. We also
pull CVS for glibc and xulrunner, instead of putting those in the
PKGBUILD, we upload a tarball to FTP.
