When source for package is set to git repository in PKGBUILD (e.g. source=("${pkgname}::git+")), git is checking out all source tree. Some times it's a lot of traffic.

My request is to add ability to modify options of VCSCLIENTS\DLAGENTS in makepkg.conf file, so we could do something like `/usr/bin/git clone %u --depth=1` to download only the latest state of source tree.
This task depends upon
