Mentor has a bitbake patch series to support construction of and fetching
of shallow git tarballs. My goal is to get this merged for master, now that
morty has been branched, but ran into a unit test failure, so I’m working
on that, and on adding some new unit tests for it, before re-submission.
The current version is at https://github.com/kergoth/bitbake on the
shallow-external branch, if you’re curious.
