Because heftig decided it was easier *for him* to do it this way.

Because downloading 100 MB for every single patchlevel release quickly
builds up to just as much as a full git clone.

Can you tell us why you believe the move to git was "a solution in
search of a problem"?
Can you tell us why you replied to this list with the message that there
are full tarballs, as though you think heftig did not know this and
reject this already? Who are you trying to convince here?
