Quoting the VCS package guidelines[1]:

> Suffix pkgname with -cvs, -svn, -hg, -darcs, -bzr, -git etc. unless
the package fetches a specific release.

I'm pretty sure a package that just fetches a release tarball shouldn't
be called -git, as this suffix is reserved for packages that build
latest git master. In fact, this package has nothing to do with git
except that the sources it fetches are hosted on a site that also hosts
git repositories.
