> There are too many issues with removing git as a dependency.
> First, with future support coming for moving between different versions, we will likely
need to download and extract multiple versions of the git repos.
> Second, removing the git dependency and going with just tag downloads from github is
difficult at this time as the github mirrors are inconsistent and keep getting backed up.
> One thing that is stable is the canonical source repo.
> For this issue, remove downloading and extracting tag zipballs. Instead, clone the source
and checkout the needed tags as necessary.
