Building the tarball is maintainer work.
The maintainer creates a "clean" tarball to distribute it.
Don't tell me that the maintainer has no git installed.

End users fetch the generated tarball to build/distribute kexec-tools.
AFAIK the rpm spec file is generated and only available in the generated
tarball. They don't need git. Only the maintainer which generates the distribution
tarball needs git...
