Thank you.

For those curious, I compared the disk usage of both the -git and -hg
packages on my system.

ttf-google-webfonts-git uses 459 MiB.
ttf-google-webfonts-hg uses 2.6 GiB.

To make things less ambiguous, I am going to alter the pkgdesc for my
package to clarify why we have both a -git and -hg version. I CC'd the
maintainer of the -git version.
