Right. While there are some advocating against any and all tarball
splits (Kevin, Erik, others?), I think there are a good number
(including Scott, myself and other fedora packagers minus Kevin) that
are asking for only well-planned split tarballs.
With that in mind, I'd propose:
* for any module (in the classic svn sense) not-yet fully migrated to
git (ie, that is currently in the frankenstein half-split state),
continue to distribute it as a single monolithic tarball.
I'm assuming this is technically feasible. If not, the point is moot
(and why are we having this conversation? :) ).
