Okay, say that I run
$ git clone --bare --depth 1 git://some.repo.git foo
blah blah clone clone...etc.
$ git clone foo foo-local-clone
Cloning into 'shallowclone'...
fatal: attempt to fetch/clone from a shallow repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
And here is what makepkg does with git sources:
1) clones a bare repository into SRCDEST
2) verifies the checksum, which should be 'SKIP' for these kinds of
3) clones the SRCDEST repo into the BUILDDIR, $srcdir.
If it can't complete this final step, then you have no sources to work
with and makepkg is worthless for git sources.

Using git clone preserves every file to the smallest detail. cp makes no
