SYNOPSIS

  GIT_URI="..."
  [GIT_BRANCH="..."]
  [GIT_REV="..."]

  inherit git

DESCRIPTION

Git is a distributed version control system. Originally developed for the Linux kernel, it is widely used by a number of projects, including GNOME, GStreamer, X.Org, and Xfce.

This cygclass creates source tarballs from Git checkouts.

NOTE

This cygclass sets a special SRC_URI for the tarball it creates. If additional sources are required, be sure to _add_ to SRC_URI rather than outright setting it.
