The headline says it pretty much so, just occured to me when cloning a git repo with makepkg.. we could save bandwidth by making a shallow copy only. Confirmed with the code, the parameter is not used, please add it.

For git it's git clone --depth 1 ...
I believe there's an alternative for svn,mercurial,..

Thanks, Mark
This task depends upon
